This is an original linoprint that I created in response to a poem that was written during the First World War, by Knight Summers. The following two verses describe the scene you see before you.

'By chance I caught a straggling horse -
My captain then I raised -
And threw him 'cross the horses back -
That saved him, heaven be praised.

The horse, good luck, was young and strong
And o'er the ground we flew -
If once we gained the British lines
We should be safe I knew.'
