(Written in 1996 - eighty years after the Somme)

'When the boys come home from the front,' she said,

'I'll pick the one I wish to wed'

Forgetting, in her hazy head,

The eighty years her beaux lay dead.


For fifty years she'd lived alone,

With only cats to call her own,

And now she lived in a nursing-home,

Bereft of everything she'd known.


Her visitors look far too old

To be the people she is told.

Her face is blank, her heart is cold,

For lack of a hero's hand to hold.


At last, although no soldier-boy,

A cuddly new love brings her joy:

Her idle arm finds fresh employ,

To stroke her furry 'Felix' toy.
