“Here Dead We Lie” – By A. E. Housman

November 14, 2011

Here dead we lie
Because we did not choose
To live and shame the land
From which we sprung.

Life, to be sure,
Is nothing much to lose,
But young men think it is,
And we were young.

(A. E. Housman, 1914)

Kerry Peters read “Here Dead We Lie” at both of our November 13 Services. A recording of A. E. Housman reciting the poem is embedded below:
