Wetzlar - The Turks - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

It was cold in early December,
and so frozen their little feet
I have sworn to forget to remember
it's at night, in my dreams, that we meet.

    I don't understand the background to this, Herbs. I still detect a huge sadness in here, though.

    Yes so true it can become cold defending your piece of turf, is that where the term
    cold war was born

    Forget the Turks when you wake to a brand new day,
    but never....forget your Turkish Delight.
