A most attractive volume, including Brooke's best remembered poems, Tiare Hahiti and The Soldier, with its famous opening line, 'If I should die, think only this of me: That there's some corner of a foreign field That is for ever England', as well as his longer poem Grantchester, with its equally famous ending: 'oh! yet Stands the Church clock at ten to threeý And is there honey still for teaý'
