What similar themes do poems in the conflict cluster have?
I'm trying to make a checklist so I know which poems would be good to compare with one another, any help is much appreciated

Background of Nature: Mametz Wood and Bayonet Charge
Conflict caused by attitudes to war: The Right Word and At the Border 1979
Armed Conflict: Belfast Confetti and The Yellow Palm
Nature: Hawk Roosting and The Falling Leaves, also potentially you could include Mametz Wood
Indirect approach to war: Mametz Wood and Poppies
Horror/Tragedy: Belfast Confetti and Bayonet Charge

hope this helps good luck!

Suggested poems to be compared together: (Taken From a book you choose the one you can surely compare the most with)

Futility - Either 'The falling leaves' or 'Come on, Comeback' as they share the same theme of sadness and loss.
The Charge of the Light brigade - Either 'Poppies and Futility' which demonstrate the effect of conflict. Or 'Bayonet Charge' and 'Next to of course God America I' which share the theme of patriotism.
Come on, come back - Futility, The falling Leaves, Out of the blue, Mametz Wood, Hawk Roosting.
Bayonet Charge - The Charge of the Light brigade, poppies, belfast confetti, mametz wood.
The Falling leaves - Out of the blue, Mametz wood, come on comeback, futility , poppies.
Next to of course God america I - Hawk roosting, The yellow palm, The Right Word, Charge of the light brigade, Flag.
Flag - The Yellow palm , Charge of the Light brigade, next to of course God America I.
Out of the blue - Poppies, Belfast Confetti, Futility, Mametz Wood, Come on comeback.
Mametz Wood - Charge of the light brigade, bayonet charge, the falling leaves, out of the blue.
The Yellow Palm - Hawk Roosting, Next to of course God America I, The right word, At the border.
The Right Word - The yellow palm, Next to of course God America I, At the border.
At the border, 1979 - The Right word, Belfast Confetti, The Yellow Palm, Out of the blue, Futility.
