0 happy day, Callooh! Callay!
and thrushes warbling in the bush”
He’d often quote
\in his exuberance,
fracturing Carroll’s work to suit.
A poet in his own right, too,
this moral man,
the one about the nurse at Bamfield
still etches on the inner mind.,
He landed on an alien shore
to free those held by vicious war,
and three days later, at Putot,
a sergeant then.
And the west coast winds still
howl their rage at the empty shore
from whence he came,
demanding poems never formed,
seeking dreams left untold.
Sergeant Sidney Hill; K57067 ,was killed on June 9. 1944 during the counter attack at Putot en Bessin
