Beaumont Hamel (Captured 16th November 1916)
By: Lt Ewart Alan Mackintosh M.C. The Seaforth Highlanders – Killed 21st Nov 1917
Dead men at Beaumont
In the mud and rain,
You that were so warm once,
Flesh and blood and brain.
You’ve made and end of dying,
Hurts and cold and crying,
And all but quiet lying,
Easeful after pain.
Dead men at Beaumont,
Do you dream at all,
When the leaves of summer,
Ripen to their fall?
Will you walk the heather,
Feel the Northern weather,
Wind and sun together
Hear the grouse-cock call?
Maybe in the night-time,
A shepherd boy will see
Dead men and ghastly,
Kilted to the knee.
Fresh from the new blood-shedding,
With airy footsteps treading,
Hill and field and steading,
Where they used to be.
Nay, not so I see you,
Dead friends of mine;
But like a dying pibroch
From the battle-line.
I hear your laughter ringing,
And the sweet songs that you’re singing
And the keen words winging
Across the smoke and wine.
So we still shall see you,
Be it peace or war,
Still in all adventures,
You shall go before.
And our children dreaming,
Shall see your bayonets gleaming,
Scotland’s warriors streaming
