after all these years
i’m peering through the wrought iron fence
eyes grown big
old emerson school
so small

Helga Deen  (1925-1943)   (Sentanka)

Mit achtzehn ermordet
Helga Deen im KZ Sobibór
Nur Tagebuch und Briefe

War alles was von ihr blieb
Ihr Andenken aber bleibt 

Murdered at eighteen
Helga Deen at Sobibór 
Only letters and diary

Was all that remained of her
But her memory remains

Helga Deen en Sobibor
Asesinado a dieciocho años
Sólo cartas y un diario

Fue todo lo que quedaba 
Pero su memoria sigue siendo

Note: Helga Deen, born in 1925 in Stettin moved with her parents in 1933 to Tilburg in the
Netherlands. She was a talented young woman not only in writing but also in drawing. Her

had a brother -Klaus- and both visited school in Tilburg. The family had to move from
their house and Helga an her brother had to leave school together with other ten Jewish

School: There once was a school

Classes filled with nice students

Our goal was to learn

But my dreams turned to ash

Then my dream was to get passed

school awards
worthless garbage that set kids
apart from their peers
applause when come up on stage
for any prize but poetry

See them hand in hand,
Together they shine brightly
Smiles on both faces
So sweet and caring to me,
Who could ever wish them apart?

Boy asks for gift help,
Girl  matches my craziness,
Perfect for eachother,
An adorable couple,
Hopes and expectations rise.

Gazing gleefully,
Into another's  bright eyes,
Example of love,
Now forever together,
May your paths stay bound as one.

Late nights and early mornings
Papers and exams

A KISS (3 Tanka)

it was just a kiss
two kids on a carousel
pipe organ playing
ups     downs    around and around
a kiss I cannot forget

we kissed at midnight
christmas eve and mistletoe
good friends surrounding
i had dreamt of such a kiss
all through high school    and beyond

we kissed    then she laughed
i knew it was innocent
married    both of us
but what a surprise i had
she had dreamt the same as I

                                            Education is
                                    Its own fulfilling reward
                                    Disappointments come,
                                 Not to redefine knowledge;
                                   But to clarify our dreams

High School, what a drag
My best friend has class today?
Why did she start now?
School for her starts tomorrow
I wish I could have done more

Ringing of the bells
Vibrate through the cold hallways
Students are restless
Fun is a lost memory
Equations are my rewards

We paused in the shade
Of the cool, green, cedar tree
Ties flapping in wind
Satchels hung like saddlebags
We raced home like wild horses

School Day Memories
My childhood relived In memory's inner senses Touch, nose, ears and eyes Pain as I slip on waxed floor Tears at the sight of my blood The smell of iodine ointment Hearing the school bell Seeing my mother waiting Yesterday's childhood revisited Memory has no tomorrow
