A sweet, short poem for the youth forgotten
“Having lost the will for life or death
May is made snowy by February forever!
My heart is full of sadness with all of its heaviness;
Georgia is drenched in the loud mourning of Makashvilis!”
These verses belong to Maro Makashvili’s father Kote Makashvili. In the poem is reflected all the pain of Georgian parents whose children fell heroically in the winter of 1921.
The diary that is left from Maro shows her majestic soul and amazing intelligence. On the cover of the diary, Maro drew the flag of Georgia and wrote the proverb: “Whatever you give is yours, what you have not is lost.”
