Poem Title:  Birds In The Trenches

Poem Category:  Nature Poems

Poet:  Willoughby Weaving

Poet Biography: 
Willoughby Weaving (1885-1977) was an Irish Poet.



Poem: 
Ye fearless birds that live and fly where men can venture not and live, that even build Your nests where oft the searching shrapnel shrilled and conflict rattled like a serpent, when the hot guns thundered further, and from his den the little machine-gun spat, and men fell piled in long-swept lines, as when a scythe has thrilled, And tall corn tumbled ne'er to rise again. Ye slight ambassadors twixt foe and foe, Small parleyers of peace where no peace is, Sweet disregarders of man's miseries and his most murderous methods, winging slow about your perilous nests - we thank you, so unconscious of sweet domesticities.
