37386 - Civilians and Soldiers

N. Lygeros

Civilians and Soldiers
passing us
in the streets
made the Sign of the Cross
saying Long life to you.
Thank the Almighty
who sent you to us
because the Greeks
were grateful
for the courage
and the sacrifice
of the young pilots.
and Hurricanes
became a precious ally
in occupied Greece
and old people
remembered them
because they were
the only response
to the attacks
of Nazism
against innocent people.
Their spirit, our pride.
