I Asked


I asked,

Don’t step on the rain

We'll tread in between the drops

Maybe, here in this field

Love lies waiting,

Love still wild,



Which we haven't yet





I don't know a thing

About foxes

I see the nails through their Sweaty eyes

That's why I left

But he persists

Bringing me a ripe moon

Under its light breaking into A dervish dance

Until he falls as dead

I don't draw near

To hear his wakened heart

As I've already said

What do I know about foxes?

Gulls Made Love


Gulls Made Love

On the water

I heard the sea

Pass gently

Between them

Even the surrounding sands

Held off the while.

(C) Shulamit Sapir -Nevo


Translated By Mel Rosenberg


I Yearn



I yearn

For things

That might have happened

For waves rushing ashore

And flooding me,


If I were the sand,

And you the sea.
