„October's bellowing anger breakes and cleaves
The bronzed battalions of the stricken wood“

—  Siegfried Sassoon, Autumn

The Counter-Attack and Other Poems (1918)
Kontext: October's bellowing anger breakes and cleaves
The bronzed battalions of the stricken wood
In whose lament I hear a voice that grieves
For battle's fruitless harvest, and the feud
Of outrage men. Their lives are like the leaves
Scattered in flocks of ruin, tossed and blown
Along the westering furnace flaring red.
O martyred youth and manhood overthrown,
The burden of your wrongs is on my head.
