Originally published in 1919, this book presents the collected poems of Donald F. Goold Johnson (1890–1916). The collection was created posthumously, following Johnson's tragic early death whilst fighting on the Western Front. Two main sections make up the text, the first being composed of poems written during the First World War and the second containing earlier works. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in English poetry and the literature of the First World War.
