Never-Ending Book Quiz
Below is the last verse of Judging Distances which, like other poems by the same writer collected in The Lessons of War, bends military parlance into witty poetry.
Who is the poet? Hint: his best-known work was a parody of T.S. Eliot's Burnt Norton.
"There may be dead ground in between; and I may not have got
The knack of judging a distance; I will only venture
A guess that perhaps between me and the apparent lovers,
(Who, incidentally, appear by now to have finished,)
At seven o'clock from the houses, is roughly a distance
Of about one year and a half."
