The picture above is of the actual poem (on the right), a letter he wrote while he was on the ship on his way to France, and two books of WWI poetry that were his. They are filled with wonderful graphics as well. I hope you enjoy the poem as much as I love reading it.
Same place, same war, same month, different day
Same (as per usual):
Same kind of longing to see you. Etc., Etc., Etc., Etc., Etc.,
Same promises of coming back.
Same description of beautiful scenery.
Same assurances not to worry about me ending with statement of
great danger I am about to enter and hardships I am enduring all for you.
(Service record shows I was DRAFTED Sept. 19. 1918)
Same great agony of mind I am enduring wondering if that damn
slacker is still hanging around your house.
Same description of beautiful ? girls, and how well I am
learning to speak
Same complimentary mention of company officers and kindness of
Same promises, Same love
P.S. Be sure to put "1st CLASS: before private in my address.
So? Do you love it as much as I do? If you look closely at the picture of the letter below you can see more of his words that are also romantic.
