Small town - Northern Poland

Almost forgotten, moss covered mounds in a forest

not so easily found, no crosses here,

no stones of remembrance.

Cries of pain echo

the lamentations of tall trees falling bodies leave

blood upon the leaves, lorry departing

another load from the locked synagogue.

Revolver shot - old man

unable to walk the path to the pit one final solution.

Synagogue museum

respectful young Poles play the wild music of lost

grey memories haunting the wintry woods.
