Another Troy

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.
