To Hear You Sing, O Maiden - Poem by Yehoshua Shim'onai
I hear the music playing this place
And I listen to the sweet sound of praise;
I hear a sweet song that’s so full of grace –
. The sweetness of sound in my ears it stays.
It reminds me of you, singing sweetly,
Reminds me of you humming pleasantly;
I hear it as of you it reminds me –
With it, I thought of you, reminiscingly.
I played the song, then thought of you – singing,
Imagined to hear your voice that’s pleasing;
My thought is your voice as the song’s playing
And with this sweet sound, in my mind you sing.
And then I remember your soul’s sweetness,
Being reminded of your heart’s goodness
And, O, I remember your godliness,
Being reminded of your heart’s sacredness!
With your humming, my bitterness sweetens
And as you sing, O hate I’ve forgotten;
As you sing, O love, to you I’ve fallen –
I loved you as to your voice I listen!
O my ears want to hear your voice again,
That with your voice my heart be soften;
My heart longs to hear you sing, O maiden,
That with you singing this joy will deepen!
