Stadterhebungs Monument

What passing-bells for these who die as cattle?

Stadterhebungs Monument for the Battle of Worringen, Burgplatz 40213 Düsseldorf, Germany

Only the monstrous anger of the guns.

Stadterhebungs Monument for the Battle of Worringen, Burgplatz 40213 Düsseldorf, Germany

Only the stuttering rifles’ rapid rattle

Stadterhebungs Monument for the Battle of Worringen, Burgplatz 40213 Düsseldorf, Germany

Can patter out their hasty orisons.

From Wilfred Owen’s Anthem for Doomed Youth (1917)
