Never Again

I chanced upon a website containing a remarkable collection of poems and photos. One of the poems seems especially touching as we approach Kol Nedre. The poem by John Coyote begins

Never again. Nie wieder. Plus jamais.

(The old man spoke with tears.
Told me it must never happen again.
He  told me he watched his brothers and parent walk into death arms.
He could not do anything.)

I was sitting alone at the train station in Stuttgart.
A old man sits at my table and offered his hand.

I take it and ask what does he want?

He told on this day 33 years ago.
A American soldier broke down  the wall of  the concentration camp.
Pick him off the floor and held him.

I encourage you to visit John’s blog and read the poem in it’s entirety.
