Excerpts from Letters and Poems of Wilfred Owen
Breaking the surface of the ebony pond.
Of swimmers carving through the sparkling cold
Gleaming with wetness to the morning gold.
Dim, through the misty panes and thick green light,
As under a green sea, I saw him drowning
He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning.
Filmed in England (Torquay) and France.
