Aftermath

Fenet-Henri-Joseph219 words

For Henri Joseph Fenet, and the Men of the Charlemagne Division — “Loyal To The End”

Your knighthood was bestowed
In the reign of fire
And phosphorous,
The weight of judgement
Already a Damocletian sword.
Thinking of home,
But now there is no home —
Only orphaned men
In a broken land.
No glasses raised
Or ballads sung,
Only Berlin’s fiery
Götterdämmerung.

A different fire consumed you
As you defended the rubble
Of Wilhelmstrasse;
White flame of Spirit-
Alchemy’s art,
In black sun forming,
Transmutes into Light.
You lived now only to fight.

In smoldering cellars
Of charnel flesh,
The whited sepulchers
Of hollow eyes bore witness
To the danse macabre.
The blood-grimed faces
Frozen in silent supplication
Of men that had known
Long years of travail.
Soon, Old Testament law
Would prevail.

amongtheruinsIn the damp cell that bled
Memory and longing,
You took the beatings —
It was understood.
Harder to take was the
Children’s hateful glare.
The years at the front had
Hardened the Will and
Burned out the dross;
Inured you
To pain and loss.

Amidst Europe’s
Via Dolorosa,
A sacred cause united
Men of race.
Perhaps the monarchs
Of a forgotten age
Would render you homage,
And honor your names.
The Republic would shun you;
You’d stand alone —
You, the brothers in arms
Of Saint Joan.

    The French SS-Division Charlemagne defended Germany in the last days of the war in Berlin. What a symbol to cast its light over the abyss of today! It shows that European unity was possible, and that it is possible. Under National Socialism Europe would have been also one, but not as a dead, materialistic, soul-killing, anticultural big power machine for small-minded people who have been washed up on the shores after a giant storm; but rather a Europe fostering its many aspects of art, language, custom, world-view, individuality.
    The Divisio Charlemagne and those from other nations, but also the many volunteers from most European countries prove that here a true chance of unity of white people existed.
    Great and moving poem to these great men.

      It seems that it was not the SS-Division Charlemagne defending Berlin to the last, but the Volunteer-Légion Française. -That just for accuracy.
