Zyklus Hamburg 1943 I english

Childhood 1943
Short sleep in heavy trousers
Sirene is howling.”quick, quick, hurry up”
running through the park, passing roses.
Mother is warning “close your mouth, night’s air is dangerous”,
while the noise of air bombers is coming nearer,
young body is aching with side pain
where are Hamburg’s defending soldiers,
in which the child believed.
This bombers’ swelling noise
don’t have a name till nowadays,
suddenly through clouds the bombers came,
lifelong fear , uncontrollable from now on,
staggering and out of breath we arrived the bunker,
I trembled
