The Southern Part of France During the War



When I was very small my father taught me my first poem


     In the Southern part of France

     they wear no pants

     but they do wear leaves

     to protect them from the breeze.


He told this to his soldiers in World War II,

All of whom are dead.

They laughed and laughed, before they died.
