New Day's Lyric

May this be the day
We come together.
Mourning, we come to mend,
Withered, we come to weather,
Torn, we come to tend,
Battered, we come to better.
Tethered by this year of yearning,
We are learning
That though we weren't ready for this,
We...

My Heart Is in the East

My heart is in the east,
and I am in the distant west.

How can I taste what I eat,
and how can it be sweet?

How can I fulfill by vows and oaths,
as long as Zion is in the chains of Edom,
and I am in the binds of the...

At The Dawn

At the dawn I seek Thee,

  Rock and refuge tried,
In due service speak Thee

  Morn and eventide.

‘Neath Thy greatness shrinking,

  Stand I sore afraid,
All my secret thinking

  Bare before Thee laid.


  Little to Thy glory
Heart or...

The Hollow Men

I
We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Leaning together
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
Our dried voices, when
We whisper together
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass
Or rats' feet over broken glass
In our dry cellar
...

The Man of Double Deed

There was a man of double deed,
Who sowed his garden full of seed;
When the seed began to grow,
'Twas like a garden full of snow;
When the snow began to melt,
'Twas like a ship without a belt;
When the ship began to sail,
'Twas like a bird without a...

A Heavy Apple

A heavy apple draws a full branch down with summer,
so it will know where to fall, an open hand grows up from the ground.
Like so, my soul, you bow ever lower, dumber,
loaded heavy with juice and time and fermenting beams of...

I’m Thankful That We’re Both Alive at the Same Time…

I’m thankful that we’re both alive at the same time,
for if the chasm of an instant were to separate us,
a moan would divide both joy and hope with a knife
and both hearts would not beat in my...

And This Is the Ballad of My Life

And this is the ballad of my life: dipping bread
in salt at a banquet for my unseen guests from afar.
And when they are hailed on by clod of earth after clod of earth,
to meet them between long tree-lined streets once...

Butterfly

What lovely aftermath
is painted in your dust.
You were led through the flaming
core of the earth,
through its stony shell,
webs of farewell in the transient...

עוד חוזר הניגון

עוד חוזר הניגון שזנחת לשווא
והדרך עודנה נפקחת לאורך
וענן בשמיו ואילן בגשמיו
מצפים עוד לך, עובר אורח

והרוח תקום ובטיסת נדנדות
יעברו הברקים מעליך
וכבשה ואיילת תהיינה עדות
שליטפת אותן והוספת...

The little station Treblinka

The little station Treblinka

On the line Tluszcz-Warsaw
From the Warsaw -East station
Railways leave
And go straight...

And the trip lasts sometimes
Five hours and three quarters
And sometimes lasts
The whole life until...

אי אפשר, או: לו הייתי אי ירוק בים

האי הצף, האי הבודד
בלי תמונות כאלו ..לא הייתי שורד...

כמה פסטורלי ורגוע להתבונן
באיים ייחודיים שהאדם מתכנן.

כמה מאמץ השקעה (ואיזה עלות!)
אך לבנות אי צף, בים? נשמע כמו שטות!

יש כל כך הרבה מקום בעולם
ואנשים שצפים בייאוש...

In My Craft Or Sullen Art

In my craft or sullen art
Exercised in the still night
When only the moon rages
And the lovers lie abed
With all their griefs in their arms,
I labour by singing light
Not for ambition or bread
Or the strut and trade of charms
On the ivory stages
But...

In the Absence of Sparrows

Rockets concuss. Guns rattle off.

Dogs in a public square
feed on dead horses.

I don’t know, Jim, where you are.
When did you last see
birds? The winter sky in...

Awake

Calm as that moonbeam on the wall,
Sleep broods on baby's eyes;
Arms, hush'd and still, but pulsing quick,
Enfold him as he lies;
My brain is full of thronging thoughts,
Strange passions thrill my breast,
My heart aches with a load of love
That will...

Nightingales, A Sigh, A Whisper

Nightingales, a sigh, a whisper
In a shady nook
And the lullaby in silver
Of a lazy brook.

Light of night and midnight shadow
Falling from above
And the changing mood and magic
Of a face you...

Fashion

See those resplendent creatures, as they glide
O'er scarlet carpet, between footmen tall,
From sumptuous carriage to effulgent hall -
A dazzling vision in their pomp and pride!
See that choice supper - needless - cast aside -
Though worth a thousand...
