A Poem to the City of Zagreb
As part of distance learning, MYP 1 students (Croatian LL Team) were tasked to write a lyric poem (two stanzas, a cross rhyme, a Zagreb theme) to emphasise that the lyric can express experience and that the poet expresses his attitude and feelings.
In that way the lyric fills the soul and heals it.
Our student Gea from MYP 1 proved that with her poem Wounded City, which she dedicated to the city of Zagreb, affected by the earthquake during the coronavirus pandemic.
Pogledom pratim prazno srce grada mog,
Na krhkom staklu magli se dah,
Ne mogu se riješiti osjećaja tog,
Da grad moj je mogao postati prah.
Misli mi odu u proljeće lani,
Nismo ni sanjali da sljedećeg biti neće,
No kada se zajedno skupimo vani,
Ljubav i snagu ćemo dati da opet budemo grad pun sreće.
