    • POEM: How Rupert Brooke Died by Robert Rorabeck (11/25/2009 4:27:00 PM)

      He died on the ship returning to England after fighting the French
      in France. There was a poem in his pocket that was given to his mother,
      and it is engraved at his masoleum where a perpetual flame is kept alway's
      alit in memorium.

    • POEM: How Rupert Brooke Died by Robert Rorabeck (11/25/2009 4:23:00 PM)

      There is a perpetual flame kept alit at his masoleum there
      engraved the words were thus,
      If I should die think only this of me that there is some corner
      of a foreign field that is forever England there shall be in that
      rich earth a richer dust concealed a dust whom England
      bore, shaped, made aware gave once her flowers to love
      her ways to rove a body of England breathing English air
      washed by the rivers and blessed by the son's of home
      and think this heart the evil all shed away a pulse in
      the eternal mind no less that gives back the thoughts that
      England gave of her sights, sounds, dreams, laughter
      learnt of friends in hearts at peace under an English Heaven.

    • POEM: Abou Ben Adhem by James Henry Leigh Hunt (11/25/2009 4:09:00 PM)

      When I was a boy I used to listen to this poem recited by my Grandfather
      Raymond Henry Van Wyck complete with beautiful strains of brahms
      symphony recorded on a reel to reel. I memorized it yet it just is not the
      same without the background symphony playing and a toastmasters
      diction really putting you in a deep dream of sleep!
