1914 by Rupert Brooke.

War Sonnet V: The Soldier

If I should

die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
A body of England's, breathing English air,
Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.
And think, this heart, all evil shed away,
A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;
Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;
And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,
In hearts at peace, under an English heaven.

    I've studied this poem last year.. I think that It's not that much compared to " In The Children Hospital " by Christopher Murray Grieve.. Particularly these lines : Now let the legless boy show the great lady How well he can manage his crutches Thry a few desperate steps through the ward Then the hand of Royality will pat your head For a couple of legs are surely no miss When the loss leads to such an honour as this! But would the sound of your sticks on the floor Thunder in her skull for ever more! 😆

    如果我死了,只要这样思念我 在海外之地的某些角落里, 那曾属于英国,那片本应富饶的土地上, 被覆盖着厚厚的尘埃, 一粒尘埃生于英国,也曾为人所知, 也曾向她献花示爱,也曾为她徘徊, 一副英伦之驱,呼吸着英国的空气, 被河水冲刷,被家乡的阳光普照, 思念,这颗心,远离所有邪恶, 脉搏,在不朽的心脏中跳动, 给予回归英国的 思念, 她的叹息,她梦想的幸福, 还有朋友们传授的笑声与温存, 留存在宁静的心中,英国的天国里。
