War broke: and now the winter of the world
With perishing great darkness closes in . . .
For after spring had bloomed in early Greece,
And Summer blazed her glory out with Rome,
An autumn softly fell, a harvest home . . .
But now, for us, wild winter, and the need
Of sowings for new spring, and blood for seed.
- “1914” by Wilfred Owen, Manchester Regiment
