..."we were nowhere / Near and knew nothing about it at all"


Totenstille

Now as I reach the age they were back when
The old ones were silent and serious
I know how it felt to be German then
Their silence no longer mysterious

The yoke of history is hard to wear
So heavy even if "we were nowhere
Near and knew nothing about it at all"

Raised voices are lowered after the fall
In dust and ashes lies the memory
As silence becomes the witness we bear
To bury the burden of history

It is perhaps a sad and unpleasant reminder, Stevie; but a necessary one nonetheless. Thank you. Love and peace to you,

A very deep look into the past. I almost feel like a prisoner on a train, looking out at the death camp the Nazi's will put me in. I hope that my father's trickle of German ancestors had nothing to do with it, for I'm almost too afraid to dig too far into the tree of my family to see what I'll find. This is one of those poems that 'stays with you'...
Reviewed by Felix Perry
Very realistic look at a shameful time in world history, as the years pass by it seems that this subject has become too sensitive any more for people to explore in verse, but I believe as this poem does...It should never be forgotten. Thanks for the reminder Steve.

'in dust and ashes lies the memory' We must pass this history down to our children and grandchildren - it must never be forgotten
