Montgomery Lower Middle School

  Creating confident, compassionate, and successful learners


Montgomery Lower Middle School
"Where days are well spent"
The poem below; submitted by J.T. Scherb is the result of an assignment in Mrs. Reilly’s LA class that stems from Ilse Loeb’s visit to LMS this month. All the sixth grade LA teachers asked the students to write Ilse a letter of appreciation. All students brainstormed the need to show appreciation in any way possible. Students were also given the option of choosing a more creative outlet for expressing their thanks, so some students write poems or draw pictures.
For Ilse Loeb.
A Holocaust Survivor.

Hush little rabbit hiding in the brush,
the wolves outside will hear you.
If they hear you, they will find you and drag you away screaming,
never to return. 
 Be calm little rabbit for the wolves cannot see you,
hiding in the brush, protected by the leaves.
But if you fidget the leaves will fall away.
For your own sake, please let the leaves stay.
Stay hopeful little rabbit, in this time of crises.
The wolves won't be here forever,
and when they go,
we can finally go outside and greet the great bears
who drove off the wolves. 
Dream little rabbit,
for when the bears come, we can finally
go outside and I can finally see your face.
For we've been in the darkness so long,
I've forgotten it.
Fight little rabbit,
fight the silent fight.
By being here, hiding here,
we defy the wolves.
And defying the wolves is our
only way to survive.
