Treasure Island

Alysza Ripley


Germany's Memoir


Ancient ruins not so old
Murdered fires not yet cold
Batered memories newly old
Not to be forgotten

Success is far and
Success is near if
Success is hatred and fear
Turned in the hearts year after year
Not to be forgotten

Young and ignorant with
No knowledge of sorrow
Foolishly wishing for tomorrow
When today will never end
The mail will never send
A package of freedom
But the hope is
Not to be forgotten

A hard price to pay
Deaths day after day
For victory almost won
For songs not yet sung
Hope for a day with
A glorious ray of dawn
Ushering in the bittersweet win
Of Allies and Jews
A ruined world
Started anew
And their stories are
Never to be forgotten

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I got the idea to this in my law course, watching a movie about the Holocaust and war crimes. I got really mad at the movie and I remembered my Nannie talking about her life in London during WW2 and I wrote this poem.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
