Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 9, No. 3. April 13, 1946

The Last Camp

The Last Camp

The candle is a smear of war,
Thought guttered out,
And I wake weary as the creaking door.

Thrushes in the rain-soaked tree Call lazily.
Faint echo losing in the misty hills.

The calm indifferent smoke
Adds blue to grey.
Roll up the blankets for another day.

Alun Falconer.
