If I Write The Same Poem


IF I WRITE THE SAME POEM


If I write the same poem
Over and over again
Why write it again now?

The poem I wrote yesterday
May be the poem
I write tomorrow-

But yesterday is not today
And today is not tomorrow-

I have written this poem
Countless times before
But never before
On Erev Pesach 5711-

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
