Analysis of Aspens by Edward Thomas

This poem was written on July 11th 1915, just three days before Edward Thomas successfully took his army medical, prior to joining the Artists Rifles. This means that, by the time he wrote this poem, the great decision, as to whether to enlist, or emigrate to America, had already been made and this alters the tone of this poem from those which he had been writing while still undecided.
