Not exactly the right war, but.

Hmm, not quite the one - it's just that I'm s'posed to write a report about it and I've lost the poem...
Not easy to Google, this one, is it?

Might try googling WW2 poets. I'm assuming dying at age 24 in 1944 means he was killed in the war.

All I could find was Cairo Jag, Vergissmeinnicht and Villanelle something or other.

here's a bio & analysis of "Vergissmeinnicht," which is not your poem but:

I can scratch the chopped liver from the grocery list? I'll just bring myself home?

Oh dear, I'm so sorry... I was in the throes of the thrill of the hunt and totally mantled you. Tell you what: let's open a deli.
