Angel of the Ghetto.....In Memory of Irena Sendler
Day by day in Warsaw's hell
wretched families taken
herded and loaded
to die like broken lambs
in Treblinka
and there came a woman
with a special soul
who give her every thought
to the babies
existance given freely
to a single saintly task...
freedom for the little ones

With toolbox and dog she walked
across the devide
another baby smuggled free
past soldiers unknowing
cries masked by barking
this woman of saintly hue
this Angel of the Ghetto
brought one more small soul
from beneath the hand of death
to live beyond the savage end
of a father and a mother
in the dark smokes of genocide

Author's Notes:
In memory of a woman who gave selflessly and who said....
"Every child saved with my help is the justification of my existence on this Earth, and not a title to glory."

Poignant, elegant and more than inspirational.
