Remembering My Father's Demise


Morose and sad feelings have I today,
They are expected of me,
As I remember fourteen years ago,
When My Father took his leave of me.

I stood at the foot of My Father's bed,
At Galei Zahav, his Netanya Home,
At thirteen twenty-five Israeli time,
He let out his final moan.

For G-d had taken him from this World,
To Heaven his Soul did go,
At rest with our Ancestors he is now,
Not far from the Majestic Throne.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
