Rupert Chawner Brooke
Birth: Aug. 3, 1887, England
Death: Apr. 23, 1915, Greece

English Poet. He became one of the most famous poets of the first World War, due to the success of his poem "The Soldier." His recognition as a poet occured in 1911 when his work was published in two volumes: Georgian Poetry and his own book of poetry Poems 1911. He fell in love with actress Cathleen Nesbitt, but the relationship was brief. He died of blood poisoning on a French hospital ship moored in the bay of the Greek island of Skyros, shortly before embarking for the shores of Gallipoli. (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)

We'll ride the air, and shine, and flit, / Around the places where we died, / And dance as dust before the sun, / And light of foot, and unconfined, / Hurry from road to road, and run / About the errands of the wind. ~RIP~
