Life and Death
by Carroll Carstairs
Originally published in the London Poetry Review. Reprinted in The Literary Digest, October 20, 1917.

If death should come with his cold, hasty kiss
Along the trench or in the battle strife,
I'll ask of death no greater boon than this:
That it shall be as wonderful as life.
