Analysis of Analysis of As the Team’s Head-Brass by Edward Thomas

The title of this poem, and its first line refer to a team of horses, ploughing a field and the glint created by the sun catching their bridles as they turn back and forth. This team of horses could also be an allusion to the horses at the front, who would have pulled artillery and supply carts through the muddy battlefields.
