      Poetry Submission: Ode to my Father by Sam Green

      Ode to My Father
      by Sam Green

      My father told me, of a land, where we once live and dwelled
      In our hearts we will remember all our days
      Two rivers ran together, and be came one mighty flood
      We grew our food, and taught the wisdom to our young

      In relative, we lived in peace and harmony
      Those enemies cut us down so many times
      My father told me, you must use your brains and not your might
      And put the flames out, before they rages to far

      Though the Russians, had invaded his home town
      He join the racks, and came a captain of supply
      At the border he wrote home, every day
      That its peaceful now, and hope it will last

      Then the Germans killed, and bombed six hundred miles
      And the army had dispersed, and gone there only way
      After walking back to the village, were he was born
      Walking three months, as a peasant man in rags

      He saw, and was an eye witness, to the murder of three towns
      In his heart and soul he said, never again
      From the ashes, nechomer his Partisan, became a force
      And there was a one hundred thousand marks on his head

      I can remember, and still proud to know this man
      May he rest in peace, and I hope peace is found
      He work so hard, for those people, all around
      And live and died, and became a legend of this town

      May he rest in peace, and hope that peace is found
      May he rest in peace, and hope that peace is found
