Possibly due to the imminent war with Iraq - please no, this poem is very relevant. It is a very moving poem about a dead farmworker who is reminiscent of all the dead in WW1. It reflects how pointless the war was and how war is pointless. It is so Romantic in its language and so tragic as the "limbs, so dear achieved, are sides, Full-nerved - still warm - too hard to stir?" so dead. all that life and nurturing for nothing. The "clay grew tall?" growing off all the dead boys. The "cold star" reflects how cold the yong dead men's bodies are and will forever be lying there in the mud and freezing cold enriching the earth but breaking the sisters/brothers/wives/mothers/fathers/cousins etc hearts forever.
