Skies of Glory

Skies of Glory, a photo by TomRaven on Flickr.

"Dark clouds are smouldering into red
While down the craters morning burns.
The dying soldier shifts his head
To watch the glory that returns:
He lifts his fingers toward the skies
Where holy brightness breaks in flame;
Radiance reflected in his eyes,
And on his lips a whispered name."

Siegfried Sassoon (The War Poems)
