a roll of honour in memory of the unforgettable grief from the second world war,
to thousands of lost souls buried in the kanchanaburi war cemetary.
"i shall not see the shadows,
i shall not feel the rain;
i shall not hear the nightingale
sing on, as if in pain:
and dreaming through the twilight
that doth not rise nor set,
haply I may remember,
and haply may forget."
- christina rossetti, "when i am dead, my dearest"

Alas, So Long!

AH! dear one, we were young so long,
It seemed that youth would never go,
For skies and trees were ever in song
And water in singing flow
In the days we never again shall know.
Alas, so long!
Ah! then was it all Spring weather?
Nay, but we were young and together.
Ah! dear one, I've been old so long,
It seems that age is loth to part,
Though days and years have never a song,
And oh! have they still the art
That warmed the pulses of heart to heart?
Alas, so long!
Ah! then was it all Spring weather?
Nay, but we were young and together.
Ah! dear one, you've been dead so long,—
How long until we meet again,
Where hours may never lose their song
Nor flowers forget the rain
In glad noonlight that never shall wane?
Alas, so long!
Ah! shall it be then Spring weather,
And ah! shall we be young together?

Dante Gabriel Rossetti
