Flight




They sneaked silently
and they left everything back
in the country
which was no longer a home.
Fear went with them.
Family. At the doorway
stood the little girl
looked out at her big eyes
and gave Rachel the doll.
Look here, look back.
Said no one word.
Rachel presses the doll to her chest.
Mother takes Rachel
firmly by the hand.
They quietly sneak on.
Into mist and darkness.
Family.
Out and away of dark Germany.
