1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next four to seven sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest [unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1].
6. Tag five people. 

'The new troops follow after, and tread the land we won,
To them 'tis much hillside re-wrested from the Hun;
We only walk with reverence this sullen mile of mud;
The shell-holes hold our history, and half of them our blood.'

That was from 'Up the line to Death. The War Poets 1914-1918'. 

And the author of that particular paragraph from the poem was 'A. P. Herbert.'

It's a book we're using for English Literature, it was right on my desk. 

I am tagging no one.
