Hi Seph (if you happen to read this). Great poem, though I'll have to think about it a bit before I understand it all. If I'm getting it right, the last few lines:

"While out on the chalk downs
eldest sons
swords raised
wait to see which of their fathers
will burst forth from the mound"

are particularly evocative of a different belief, or maybe even our own, of a dark night.
