There were a dozen dead bodies
In the Euston Road,
Their outlines softened by the Black Dust.
All was still,
Houses locked and empty,
Shops closed -
But looters had helped themselves
To wine and food,
And outside a jewellers
Some gold chains and a watch
Were scattered on the pavement.

(Martians): Ulla!

I stopped,
Staring towards the sound.
It seemed as if that mighty desert of houses
Had found a voice
For its fear and solitude.

(Martians): Ulla!

The desolating cry worked upon my mind.
The wailing took possession of me.
I was intensely weary,
Footsore, hungry and thirsty.
Why was I wandering alone in this city of the dead?
Why was I alive,
When London was lying in state in its black shroud?
I felt intolerably lonely,
Drifting from street to empty street,
Drawn inexorably towards that cry.

(Martians): Ulla!

I saw, over the trees on Primrose Hill,
The Fighting Machine
From which the howling came.
I crossed Regents Canal.
There stood a second machine,
But as still as the first.

(Martians): Ulla! Ul-!

The sound ceased.
Suddenly, the desolation,
The solitude, became unendurable.
While that voice sounded,
London had still seemed alive.
Now suddenly, there was a change,
The passing of something -
And all that remained was this gaunt quiet.

I looked up and saw a third machine
It was erect and motionless,
Like the others
An insane resolve possessed me
I would give my life to the Martians,
Here and now

I marched recklessly towards the Titan
And saw that a multitude of black birds
Was circling and clustering about the hood.
I began running along the road.
I felt no fear,
Only a wild, trembling exultation,
As I ran up the hill
Towards the motionless monster.
Out of the hood hung red shreds,
At which the hungry birds now pecked and tore.

I scrambled up to the crest of Primrose Hill,
And the Martian's camp was below me.
A mighty space it was,
And scattered about it,
In their overturned machines,
Were the Martians -
DEAD ...
Slain, after all man's devices had failed,
By the humblest things upon the Earth,

Directly the Invaders arrived
And drank and fed,
Our microscopic allies attacked them.
From that moment -
They were doomed!
