Angela Tree

I am in Buenos Aires visiting Angela Tree

She lives in Argentina now

After the war she married her doctor

And left Westbury for good

The air is good for her scarred lungs

I told her time and time again

Not to watch the bombers without me

But she was wilful and sat in the Angela Tree

When the bombers collided she inhaled the noxious fumes

And coughed up blood for many weeks

I did not think that she would live

But the Argentinian doctor and his staff saved her

Later they married and for the sake of her health

They moved to the country of his birth

She is strong but her health is fragile

And because of this she cannot fly

I have brought many photographs of the town with me
