Would you fight for your country?”

She asked seventy years later,

when the idea of country was all mixed up

in the child who lay sleeping by the table

and the auntie reminisced about the

Germans dangling her on their knees

and feeding her ragout.

And she wondered if they missed

their wives and children,

if this was what they hoped for when

they voted for the Herr

in 1932.

'Tis a girl...

Thank the insurance and car companies that have been leaving spam comments. As I deleted them a vague memory of other recent comments came through the fog. T'was Minx and Cath J asking for news. So sorry, it's been a bit crazy here but my baby is the one on the left... no right... no left...

Hee hee. OK, this is what she really looks like. She was born at 3.33am on 10th October, can't believe she's going to be 3 months in a few days time.
