I heard this poem on the radio this morning, it was written at the same time of year and as I write the summer sun is streaming through the window:

Adlestrop by Edward Thomas

It really evokes the scene of an unwanted train halt on a mid summer’s day. Apparently he was on his way to visit fellow poet Robert Frost, it’s particularly moving as Thomas died at the battle of Arras in 1917.

I adapted one of Frost’s poems for my Alberic’s Scrapbook video project:

Acquainted with the Night

I like the feel of Thomas’s Adlestrop poem and I’d like to include it in my current poem video project.
