DPF / Sassoon

For our veterans, the one who lives in this house, the one who lives across the street, the many who live in the everywhere, and for those who run up and down the halls of Heaven looking down and seeking out, through the transparent floors under their feet, the most peaceful scenes, from poetryfoundation.org.

from Dreamers / by Siegfried Sassoon

…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.
