When My Soul Was Sad - Poem by Shalom Freedman
When my soul was sad
I saw a few more ancient than me singing together
A song of courage and defiance-
They would be happy even if ridiculous to others
They want to live even for others they are too old for life-
I praised their courage to myself
And said I must learn from them -
I will try in my old age to sing a happier song
Courage after all is the melody most admirable of all.
