The recently discovered World War II poetry by Joan Wehlen Morrison (edited by her daughter, Susan Signe Morrison), author of Home Front Girl, tells a unique – and true -- story as this teenager loses her innocence due to the impending war and its violent arrival. I will be blogging about Another Troy at the Home Front Girl website, replete with information about Joan, World War II, poetry, news, and and diaries.
April 17, 1941 [Age 18]
Paris must have fallen on a night like this,
All honey-fresh scented and sleepy.
I felt her breathe just now.
Troy must have fallen too, in spring.
