    Owen could be an honorary Ovid!

    I know it is not S but it was 100 years since the battle of Passchendaele yesterday........

    Memorial Tablet

    Siegfried Sassoon

    Squire nagged and bullied till I went to fight
    (Under Lord Derby!!!8217;s scheme). I died in hell!!!8212;!
    (They called it Passchendaele); my wound was slight,
    And I was hobbling back, and then a shell
    Burst slick upon the duck-boards; so I fell
    Into the bottomless mud, and lost the light.

    In sermon-time, while Squire is in his pew,
    He gives my gilded name a thoughtful stare;
    For though low down upon the list, I!!!8217;m there:
    !!!8220;In proud and glorious memory!!!8221;!!!8212;!that!!!8217;s my due.
    Two bleeding years I fought in France for Squire;
    I suffered anguish that he!!!8217;s never guessed;
    Once I came home on leave; and then went west.
    What greater glory could a man desire?

    and read by David Suchet
