Anthem for Doomed Youth. What passing-bells for these who die as cattle? - Only the monstrous anger of the guns. Can patter out their hasty orisons. No mockeries now for them; no prayers nor bells; Nor any voice of mourning save the choirs,- The shrill, demented choirs of wailing shells; And bugles calling for them from sad shires. What candles may be held to speed them all? Not in the hands of boys, but in their eyes. More About This Poem. Anthem for Doomed Youth.
