Bristol city centre - Jan 2007  

The Volunteer
May 2005

An ode to the International Brigade by Cecil Day Lewis (1904-1972).

Bristol city centre. January 2007


Tell them in England, if they ask,
What brought us to these wars,
To this plateau beneath the night's
Grave manifold of stars -
It was not fraud or foolishness,
Glory, revenge, or pay:
We came because our open eyes
Could see no other way.
