Girl's Song

University Of Oxford First World War Poetry Digital Archive
Manuscript in pencil in Ivor Gurney's hand. Another manuscript draft was included in a letter of September 1918 to Marion Scott and was dated 'September St. Albans'. The poem from this letter was initially published as 'The Tryst', but Gurney made the correction in a later letter. Also included in 'War's Embers' (2004). Found in a small green notebook used by Gurney in July-August 1918.
