Darkest Days

The traumatic Holocaust of World War Two
caused mass murder of Jewish society.
God's children ~ neglected, rejected
suffering great crime against humanity.
Thousands of victims, pale with fear
regretted the hour and day they were born.
From one hell to another they were led...
sharp was the thorn of history's cold morn.

To heaven they prayed, each man and maid
as from weary eyes, teardrops fell.
And deep down in their hearts they knew
a flame was near, with the force of a gale.
Weeping, wheezing ~ the last farewell,
drifting on smoky breeze, wording obscured.
The smell of gas came seeping through
as the Holocaust inferno ended their world.

Death And Destruction

To live in the south of England
in nineteen forty-one
was terrifying and horrifying
the bombing left one numb.
I stood on the hill and saw it -
the aftermath of it all,
buildings flattened, fires raging
debris from wall to wall.
Thousands of civilians killed.
I think that says it all.
The days were dark and gloomy
the nights were long and cold;
death and destruction lingered
and the story must be told.
I was one of the lucky people
I survived those years you see
yet in my heart I've a longing
to see once again my family.
However bad life seems today
it could never ever compare
to the suffering on the homefront
in the Battle fought from the air.

Deep Deep River

Rictameter - first and last word
must match ~ syllable count
2.4.6.8.10 and reverse...

River
So deep and wide
Flow gently, for awhile
Take advice from the constant Nile
Where the Aswan Dam has magical style
You bring floods, the Nile never does
Seems a Dam is a must
Take a hint deep
River

Doubting Love

Whenever he speaks
You hope for a mention
Of the way that he feels
You watch his expression.
A caress on the cheek
Is not worth a mention
Will his lips kiss your lips?
There lies the question.

Will he... or won't he
Come around in the end
With two dozen red roses,
Are you more than a friend?
A reply to the question:
'Forget him my sweet'
Because a kiss on the breeze
rarely falls on your cheek.

August 2008.
