Lions of Freedom


Two lion cubs, their parents were smuggled through
a tunnel so the oppressed people could have a zoo.
This little enclave that has shore lines, but cannot use
the sea, which their tormentors claim for themselves.
The lion cubs have become the hope for the future of
people who, despite the tyrant´s effort to make their
country ghastly as the ghetto of Warsaw; they shall
overcome. The cubs will one day grow big and strong,
break free of their cages when the enemy is beaten.

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
