Postcard by Janice Williams (1st)

Dear May
    He chews his pen

Still in the best of health
    Don’t mention the lice
    sore feet from socks always damp
    boredom and fear like old friends

Hoping this card will find
    Turns it over
    enjoying the bright coloured silks
    bright spot in his day
    red-white-blue ribbons
    bold lion-rampant on shield
    yet undefeated

you one and all likewise
    Sweet darling May and the rest
    ‘one and all’ in his heart
    he’d like to name them
    but there’s no room

From Jim
    He chews his pen
    it’s not much
    it needs a book
    or nothing

Write soon no news

    Only Ypres in the morning
