Hi

Rupert Brooke wrote (about war):

Now God be thanked Who has matched us with this hour

And caught our youth, and wakened us from sleeping.

--- does "matched" here mean that God let us pit against this hour?
What about "cauht our youth"?
I know what they mean, but I'm looking for different expressions conveying the same meaning.

Well, then you're doing better than I. Emotion: smile

My guess is as follows:

Thank God for selecting this time to capture the imaginations of us young people in order to inspire us to higher goals.

And it's only a guess.

I wanted to say that I understand separate words, but the overall meaning wasn't quite clear to me.

Emotion: wink

"I wanted to say that I understand separate words, but the overall meaning wasn't quite clear to me."

Ah! I understand -- the separate words! But that's the easy part, isn't it? Emotion: smile

I'm surprised no one else has put in their two cents yet.
