Poesias da I Guerra Mundial



Entre poemas tocantes este de Rudyard Kipling  a meu ver se destaca. Escrito em 1915 após o desaparecimento do filho John Kipling, durante the Battle of Loos. ¹

Have you news of my boy Jack?”
Not this tide.
“When d’you think that he’ll come back?”
Not with this wind blowing, and this tide.

“Has any one else had word of him?”
Not this tide.
For what is sunk will hardly swim,
Not with this wind blowing, and this tide.

“Oh, dear, what comfort can I find?”
None this tide,
Nor any tide,
Except he did not shame his kind —
Not even with that wind blowing, and that tide.

Then hold your head up all the more,
This tide,
And every tide;
Because he was the son you bore,
And gave to that wind blowing and that tide!

 My Boy Jack é o nome da peça de 1997 escrita por David Haig ator Inglês. Ele examina como a dor afeta Rudyard Kipling e sua família após a morte de seu filho, John (conhecido como Jack), na batalha de Loos em 1915. (fonte wiki)
