Monday, 5th May (1919)

One thought on “Monday, 5th May (1919)”

  1. one highly mountainous island
    one arid little rock-bound furnace
    a tall beacon
    wooden huts
    intrepid inhabitants
    we crouch on deck
    tiny patches of shade

    But on careful reading it is packed with information, succinctly expressed.
    Go Lincoln.
