Doves and Pomegranates

| | Comments (1)

Found this site through checking my referrals in sitemeter. Interesting title. And, I had been looking for the quote below.
Doves and pomegranates
recall the words of Martin Niemoller:

First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.


Thank you for the mention and I'm glad you found the Niemoller quote. My blog name comes from 'A Birthday' by Christina Rossetti -

Carve it in doves and pomegranates,
And peacocks with a hundred eyes;
Work it in gold and silver grapes,
In leaves and silver fleurs-de-lys;
Because the birthday of my life
Is come, my love is come to me.
