‘Brother Bosch’, an Airman’s Escape From Germany – Gerald Featherstone Knight

A passage from the book… It was November 9th, 1916. I lay in a state of luxurious semi-consciousness pondering contentedly over things in general, transforming utter impossibilities into plausible possibilities, wondering lazily the while if I were asleep. Presently, to my disgust an indefinable, yet persistent something came into being, almost threatening to dispel the drowsy mist then pervading my brain. The slow thought waves gradually ceased their surging, and after a slight pause began to collect round the offending mystery, as if seeking to unravel it in a half-hearted sort of way. They gave me to understand that the something recurred at intervals, and even suggested that it might be a voice,[2] though from which side of the elastic dividing line it emanated they were quite unable to say.With the consoling thought that voices often come from dreamland I allowed the whole subject to glide gently into the void and the tide of thought to continue its drugged revolutions. The next instant a noisy whirlwind swept the cobwebs away. I knew that the voice was indeed a reality, for it delivered the following message: A very fine morning, sir! Obviously my dutiful servant desired me to rise and enjoy the full benefit of the beautiful day. Agreeing with Harry Lauder, that It’s nice to get up in the morning, but it’s nicer to stay in bed! I am sorry to say I cunningly dismissed the orderly with a few false assurances, turned over on my side and promptly forgot all about such trivial matters. Conscience was kicking very feebly, and just as sleep was about to return, the air commenced to vibrate and something swept overhead with a whirling roar

What is it keeps Luitolfo? Night’s fast falling, And’t was scarce sunset–had the ave-bell Sounded before he sought the Provost’s house? I think not: all he had to say would take Few minutes, such a very few, to say! How do you think, Chiappino? If our lord The Provost were less friendly to your friend Than everybody here professes him, I should begin to tremble–should not you? Why are you silent when so many times 10 I turn and speak to you? Chiappino. That’s good! Eulalia. You laugh? Chiappino. Yes. I had fancied nothing that bears price In the whole world was left to call my own; And, may be, felt a little pride thereat. Up to a single man’s or woman’s love, Down to the right in my own flesh and blood, There’s nothing mine, I fancied–till you spoke;–Counting, you see, as ‘ nothing’ the permission To study this peculiar lot of mine In silence: well, go silence with the rest Of the world’s good! What can I say, shall serve? Eulalia. This–lest you, even more than needs, embitter Our parting: say your wrongs have cast, for once, A cloud across your spirit! Chiappino. How a cloud? Eulalia. No man nor woman loves you, did you say? Chiappino. My God, were’t not for thee! Eulalia. Ay, God remains, Even did men forsake you. Chiappino. Oh, not so! Were’t not for God, I mean, what hope of truth–Speaking truth, hearing truth, would stay with man? I now–the homeless, friendless, penniless, 30 Proscribed, and exile…
