The two parts of this title couldn't be more unrelated, but I love them both. First, the shoes, this time belonging to feet.
Rupert Brooke is one of the great British WWI poets, best known for his five-sonnet set, The Soldier. His work is stunningly beautiful and moving, definitely influenced by Romanticism...I love it, though I don't always agree with his war philosophy! Here they are. (italics mine - at least read those!)
III. The Dead
IV. The Dead (II)
V. The Soldier
Lovely and sobering aren't they?
