Pascandale | Passchendaele

April 22, 2016 § Leave a comment

After the Revolution
monks from Zonnebeke
walked through the village. 

People wished them nothing ill:
they had always been here
and there were likely worse masters.

Now they were leaving;
and knowing nothing of cities
and the ways of city men

the villagers waited
for news from the high road
of the next abbot or baron.
