Thomas Hardy - In Time Of "The Breaking Of Nations" - Read by Jasper Britton

In Time Of "The Breaking Of Nations"
by Thomas Hardy (1840-1928)

Only a man harrowing clods
In a slow silent walk
With an old horse that stumbles and nods
Half asleep as they stalk.

Only thin smoke without flame
From the heaps of couch-grass;
Yet this will go onward the same
Though Dynasties pass.

Yonder a maid and her wight
Come whispering by:
War's annals will fade into night
Ere their story die.
