Excerpt from A Canadian Twilight, and Other Poems of War and of Peace

Bernard Freeman Trotter was killed in action in France on May 7th, 1917. By his early death - he was only twenty-six - Canada lost a brave soldier and one of the most promising of her younger poets. Those who knew him best may be pardoned if they link him in' their thought with Rupert Brooke and Alan Seeger. As the former died for England in the Aegean, and the latter, an American, gave his life for France at the Somme, so Bernard Trotter laid himself on the altar of heroic and unselfish sacrifice for his native land and the sacred cause for which the Empire fights. Without claiming for him equality with either of (these inheritors of unfulfilled renown in respect of promise or achievement, one my justly say that, like them, he was a true poet, dowered with love of beauty and a quick sense of her manifold ap paritions, and possessed of a native gift for the expres Sion of poetic thought and feeling in musical rhythms. Cut ope in his youthful prime he has left only a slender sheaf of verse, but enough to prove that he had the authentic Singing note of the born poet. The purpose of the present 'writer, however, is not to give a critical estimate of his poetry, but, with the sympathy the sad circumstances manifestly demand, to record the facts of his life and death and to point out the in¿uences that shaped his character and called forth his powers.
