This print represents a Canadian WWI soldier taking a brief pause from the realities of the war; he knows the pause will end, and that he will eventually have to go back to the battlefield.This is his quiet moment of escaping back to memories and news from home.

As I read your thoughts that were scribed from home

I am released from the trenches and the target of mortar rounds,

From this parchment do fonts illuminate

My escape from this war and bloodied battle ground
