These hearts were woven of human joys and cares,
Washed marvellously with sorrow, swift to mirth.
The years had given them kindness.Dawn was theirs,
And sunset, and the colours of the earth.
These had seen movement, and heard music; known
Slumber and waking; loved; gone proudly friended;
Felt the quick stir of wonder; sat alone;
Touched flowers and furs and cheeks.All this is ended.

There are waters blown by changing winds to laughter
And lit by the rich skies, all day.And after,
Frost, with a gesture, stays the waves that dance
And wandering loveliness.He leaves a white
Unbroken glory, a gathered radiance,
A width, a shining peace, under the night.

.: :.

In the first stanza, we can see how the poet describes the purity, how full of life young people’s hearts are, and how they were to enjoy the future not to be for the war, and if they were not to go to battle and see all the barbarities humans can do. The future belongs to them.They are young and should have a long life to live and to experience, but as the poet says, all the things they had not had the opportunity to experience before the war, they may not be able to have a second chance to try.
In the second stanza, we find the poet idealizing the situation they are living through. Even at the least desireable of the scenaries, as is the war, he imagines, sees beauty, and describes it. But then again, we cannot forget where we are situated; and he turns back to the scenary he has been avoiding, i.e. the Death of someone. As glorious as it can be for a person who thinks that dying fighting is honorable, the person he’s referring to has a kind soul, was young, as he has described in the first stanza, and leaves a brief memory and a small past behind. No sins, nor explicit details of his death; just the fact, the word, and all the connotations that the poet has given to it. It seems that he is also thinking that such death is a waste for someone as young and kind as the one that has died, because he describes that person very kindly. Maybe with sorrow, as night could be a metaphore of the end of something that was unavoidable.

Summary:
(100-150 words) Rupert Brooke seems to be very pro-war. This is a bittersweet part of a larger poem that describes the glory of being a soldier and loosing life for a bigger cause. This poem focuses on the positive aspects of the war and tries to show to the public the benefits and the rewards a soldiers gets from taking part in the war and pride in dying for one’s country. He describes the dignity of the soldiers and the life they had lived, things they saw, and the courageousness of being such a strong soldier as a person prior to death. He words are beautifully written in a way that seems like a eulogy of those lost. Rupert Brooke’s poem “The Dead” is very touching. The imagery in “The Dead” brings a deeper meaning and feeling to the way he explains the strong yet beautiful and meaningful life that was lived by a man when he was a soldier. It should be a reminder to be thankful of the soldiers and their sacrifices in order to maintain the protection and freedom of the people.

The poet talks about the soldiers life before war, how he was supposed to have a joyful future. But because he joined war his life was changed. "The Dead" has a literal meaning and an indirect meaning. "The Dead" can mean the soldier is dead or the he survived and now he is depressed and dead inside.

The speaker is pro-war. He thinks that soldiers should make sacrifices for their country because saving the lives of people is very important.

The key themes of sacrifice, honor and death are seen in all 4 stanzas of the poem, and help to give a deeper understanding of the poets purpose, which I believe is to truly and honestly convey what he believes to be a fitting sacrifice for God, King and Country.

I think you hit the nail on the head. But, I think that the poet described the good life of the soldiers before the war and their hopes of a life to glorify the sacrifice they made. He makes no reference to any bad aspects of the war like Siegfried Sassoon did, for example.
Rupert Brooke seems to be pro war. His other poems say war gives meaning (Peace), a sense of security as survival is all that matters (soldier) and in this poem that it is worth the sacrifice of a normal life.
