    I Saw His Round Mouth's Crimson
    by Wilfred Owen (1893-1918)

    I saw his round mouth's crimson deepen as it fell,
    Like a Sun, in his last deep hour;
    Watched the magnificent recession of farewell,
    Clouding, half gleam, half glower,
    And a last splendour burn the heavens of his cheek.
    And in his eyes
    The cold stars lighting, very old and bleak,
    In different skies.
