John "Thunder Toes" Smith

Hometown,  Military Branch,

Home Country  

January 1, 1900 - December 31, 2017

HERE in the marshland, past the battered bridge,
⁠One of a hundred grains untimely sown,
Here, with his comrades of the hard-won ridge,
⁠⁠He rests unknown.


His horoscope had seemed so plainly drawn,—
⁠School triumphs, earned apace in work and play;
Friendships at will; then love's delightful dawn
⁠⁠And mellowing day;


Home fostering hope; some service to the State;
⁠Benignant age; then the long tryst to keep
Where in the yew-tree shadow congregate
⁠⁠His fathers sleep.


Was here the one thing needful to distil
⁠From life's alembic, through this holier fate,
The man's essential soul, the hero will?
⁠⁠We ask; and wait.
