      DREAMERS by Siegfried Sassoon
      Soldiers are citizens of death's grey land,
      Drawing no dividend from time's to-morrows.
      In the great hour of destiny they stand,
      Each with his feuds, and jealousies, and sorrows.
      Soldiers are sworn to action; they must win
      Some flaming, fatal climax with their lives.
      Soldiers are dreamers; when the guns begin
      They think of firelit homes, clean beds and wives.

      I see them in foul dug-outs, gnawed by rats,
      And in the ruined trenches, lashed with rain,
      Dreaming of things they did with balls and bats,
      And mocked by hopeless longing to regain
      Bank-holidays, and picture shows, and spats,
      And going to the office in the train.
