EACH OF US HAS A NAME – By Zelda, translated from the Hebrew by Marcia Falk

The Poem from March:

EACH OF US HAS A NAME – By the 20th century Israeli poet Zelda, translated from the Hebrew by Marcia Falk

Each of us has a name

given by the source of life

and given by our parents

Each of us has a name

given by our stature and our smile

and given by what we wear

Each of us has a name

given by the mountains

and given by our walls

Each of us has a name

given by the stars

and given by our neighbors

Each of us has a name

given by our sins

and given by our longing

Each of us has a name

given by our enemies

and given by our love

Each of us has a name

given by our celebrations

and given by our work

Each of us has a name

given by the seasons

and given by our blindness

Each of us has a name

given by the sea

and given by

our death.
