A Poem For VE Day

There was joy that day.

Happiness, laughter

Strangers kissed and hugged one another

The streets were for dancing.

The roads and avenues closed for so long,

With the torrent, the throng,

Of destruction

And cruel heartless war,

Were open once more.

Now people sang,

Children could return home,

Jimmy could go to sleep in his own little room again !

Amid the pain and terrible loss

Was a courage,

A will to survive, to celebrate,

To smile and love again.

Gone the siren's fearful scream,

Peace had come at last !
