Burnley Great War Poets


By William Marshall

There are tear-dimmed eyes in the town today
There are lips to be no more kissed
There are bosoms that swell with an aching heart,
When they think of a dear one missed

But time will prove their heartfelt grief;
Of their sons they will proudly tell,
How in the gallant charge in this world wide war
As "Pals" they fought and fell
