    Poem Commentary

    This a true story about "Little Boy Blue" . He is buried in the Chester cemetery.

    The Gift

    New,blue pajamas wrapped
    him from head to toes, 
    Like a Christmas gifr.
    The little boy lay
    so quiet and still,
    arms stright by his side.
    His blond hair fell gentle
    across his forehead.
    His pale cheeks no longer rosy,
    as they should be still,
     on such a little boy.
    Carefully placed in a snowy
    Nebraska cornfield,
    Like a winter offering,
    He was coldlly laid to rest
    on a lonely Christmas Eve,
    a sacrifice to the inhumanity
     of man to man.

    So the baby was just left out in the snow? Yes, very inhumane indeed. Did the mother leave the boy there?

    unfortunately it is true Near the townn oof Chester Nebraska.... the toewn buried him under the name of Little Boy Blue

    In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

    Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
