The Poem, I am sending to her (first part, tonge in cheek, humor intended):
Alice Herz-Sommer 107 BD
By Arley Steinhour 112010
On this Twenty of November, two thousand years, plus a ten,
Woke up this very Sabbath, praising God, with love, and grin.
After prayer, and chat with Him, I rustled up breakfast that be mine,
Eggs, potatoes, apple sauce, covered with white onion, chopped fine.
Sat down at my computer, for a day of witness, eating my confection,
Munching on my breakfast, saw an a message from, 'Jerusalem Connection.'
Presented was a story about a girl I know I'd love, but I need to state;
At seventy two, I'm feeling old, but at her age, I think I be too Late.
This shining, lovely, person, plays piano, oh so well,
Her lips would never tell a villain, he should go to Hell.
She's kind of thin, but I don't mind, my waist has some excess girth,
What love this tiny woman shines, from eyes, and heart, from birth .
I did believe she'd do just fine, to fill my lovelorn plate,
But on the twenty-sixth, she's beyond, what I dare ask her wait.
If only I were one year older, or she be one year less,
I could have a chance of being, not too young for her to bless.
Oh, sorry, didn't I tell you, Alice Herz-Sommer, be her name,
One-Oh-Seven, makes me too young, to play in her life game, what a shame.
So, I guess I'll just have to worship her, from a distance, never meeting,
But maybe, when I get to Heaven, she will bless me with a word of greeting.
Just think, not even Holocaust, could rip away her life of Love,
Alice Herz-Sommer I'd offer, is truly blessed by God above.
I do not know her full story, only bits of her experience to date,
But we will have eternity, to learn, should she wish, to us relate.
So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Alice, may you have a grand, grand party,
May those who come, to celebrate your day, share with you my Hale and Hearty:
Respect, and God Blessed Love, for YOU.
Arley Steinhour, a Christian Brother. AMEN
