flickan/ the girl
-only four years old,
with short hair,
red dress
and black shoes
stood in the crowd
with a sad look on
her face.
she could not find
her parents.
a true story about my mother
when she evacuated from home
as a little girl
during the Finnish war over
60 years ago.

Still- to get separated from ones parents
in a large crowd
must be a
horrifying thing for a little child.

Fortunately the real story has a nice ending.
She found her parents.
