Erev Yom Kippur 5774


Erev Yom Kippur
Have I prepared properly?
My sins are still with me
I do not know how to return to
What is only good and right in me-

I need God’s Help and Forgiveness
I will pray with all my soul
But sin in mind nonetheless-

May God forgive us for our forbidden thoughts
And help us do mostly Good in the world-

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
