My Mom, Pop, & me
Us living three
Dreaded the day
When we rode away,
Away to the land
With lots ofsand
My mom, pop, & me
The day of evacuation
We left our little stations
Leaving our friends
And my tree that bends
Away to the land
With lots of sand
My mom, pop, & me.

Itsuko Taniguchi, quoted in Werner, Through the Eyes of Innocents, p. 84
