Calm After The Long Fast Day Done - Poem by Shalom Freedman


Calm after the long fast day done
Waiting to begin a new year
Remembering all the promises to myself
Never kept
Through so many years-

Will the pains of my aging body
Move me at last
To at least try to do what I should
In my work and for those I love?
