Fading voice Blazing torch

I met Hilda Meers today. 89 year old poet, born to Jewish parents

She gave me her book “Pathways” with permission to quote the poem

ERASURE

that she read out in public, as we gathered outside St Nicholas Centre, Aberdeen in solidarity with suffering Palestinian people of Gaza. Quoting a few lines:

See the doctors bend over the hospital bed,
as they work for response from the child on the bed –
despairing at last, they must cover the head
of a child whose life has been stilled

Whose life has been stilled,
has been stolen away,
the mother’s heart broken –
What more can I say?

What more can I say,
What more can I do.
to speak out and to convince you
this is our heart break too.

We the next generation need to carry that same torch. Thank you Hilda for the inspiration.
