A Longing To Return To The Land Of Israel

Rating: 3.0
My heart is in the east, and I in the uttermost west.
How can I find savor in food? How shall it be sweet to me?
How shall I render my vows and my bonds, while yet
Zion lieth beneath the fetter of Edom, and I in Arab chains?
A light thing would it seem to me
to leave all the good things of Spain -
Seeing how precious in mine eyes
to behold the dust of the desolate sanctuary.

My heart is in the east, and I in the uttermost west. Exactly how I feel right now. I am dying for my beloved Israel!
