Hi, Smile, Bye - Poem by Benyamim Tsedaka

She stood in the entrance,
Her hand slightly
Leaning on him
And smiled:
Hi!

He stood on the entrance threshold,
His feet slightly mincing
and waited:
Oh, Hi!

She has waited on the entrance threshold
Her hand slightly trembling,
Laughing:
Oh, What did you want?

He has paused on the Entrance threshold,
Moving his weight from foot to foot,
Fully forgotting,
Oh, What did I want?

She stood on the entrance threshold,
And he turned and walked on,
Parting Greeting:
Oh, Bye!
