Possessions ['France has Victory...']

University Of Oxford First World War Poetry Digital Archive
Typescript of poem prepared by Marion Scott, and possibly amongst those poems submitted to and rejected by the firm Sidgwick and Jackson in 1922. Various versions of the poem survive, including another from a preceding notebook that begins 'Sand has the ants...'. A version of the poem shown here, including altered stanza breaks, was included in P.J. Kavanagh's 'Ivor Gurney: Collected Poems' (2004).
