the soil of Europe smoking

 

the soil in Europe

still smoking

when I was born

 

rationing still in force

a war won

the peace lost

 

the future

waiting to catch us

unaware

 

the home fires

burning

till there was nothing left

to burn

 

sixty years later

eyes still green

like like dollar bills

 

and the

soil of Europe

still smoking

 

smouldering in the heat

of a summer in Berlin
