Anton Bradinger

We have to announce

 

next night in the subway to come without sleep

rereading the letter she got yesterday

"We have to announce with regret true and deep ..."

 

her husband had died on the second of May

she asked herself how she could tell it her son

rereading the letter she got yesterday

 

plans for the future at one blow were gone

shocked and deprived of the power of speech

she asked herself how she could tell it her son

 

no persons of trust and no help within reach

harried by black thoughts, recurring and dire

shocked and deprived of the power of speech

 

his unit in Kharkiv had come under fire

she read disbelievingly in this short letter

harried by black thoughts, recurring and dire

 

without an idea how to deal with that matter

next night in the subway to come without sleep

she read disbelievingly in this short letter

"We have to announce with regret true and deep ..."
