#Somme (7): 500 yards (north of montauban)

Shapleys Tent

Tent where Shapley was killed.

they call the place
la boiselle

and they call it
quarry siding

somewhere near pozieres
was where I saw it

where I saw him

it happened
around Albert

over by bapaume
or
favreuil

it was there
somewhere
over there

I last saw him
by his tent
standing

  1. Hi. Thanks for such a beautifully penned poem so poignant. I read and re-read and each time the sense of loss and emotional intensity never diminished. Happy writing. Have a wonderful day. Goff
