Mona read the following poem by Anton Hall, (Ramsay High School, English 9, Mrs. Heath, teacher) at the special remembrance concert for Yom Ha'Shoah, at Samford University.
The poem was part of the many poems, essays, art projects created by the students as they studied the book.
Play Though the Pain
Listen to her music flow,
Look for what her tears show;
Lights shine in the piano’s gloss,
A memory of her greatest loss;
A beautiful melody,
A perfect tone,
Never had she felt more alone;
Here is where her head dropped,
Here is where the tune stopped;
But, up again her head rose,
Higher as the music flowed;
Lights twinkle in the gloss,
She plays through her terrible loss;
Look for what her tears show,
Listen to her music flow.
