This is a poem from the early days of the Great War, written by an Englishman, it is both a love poem of sorts for England and an exhortation for its people to come together in this hour of need, to fight as brothers against England's foes, to restore honor and justice to the world, and to set aside all petty differences until victory has been secured.
It is a highly patriotic poem, one in which the cost of war is not articulated in all its horror. It is a call to arms, one of many war poems at the beginning of the war, before its true nature came to light and with it the disenchantment of so many soldiers.
While not as fine as other war poems such as In Flanders Fields or For All We Have And Are, It is a well-written poem and it is narrated beautifully by Mr. Mather.
