THE BEAUTY OF BEING IN THE WORLD Jan.9 2009

The Beauty of being in the world,
The Beauty of Seeing,
The Beauty of these grey skies and small rain,
The Beauty of this park in all its greens.
The Beauty of morning Jerusalem light.

And three young soldiers
Killed yesterday
Defending Israel,
Ro’i Rosner 27, of Holon,
Omer Rabinovitch 23 of Arad,
Amit Robinson 20 of Kibbutz Magal,
Who will never see this Beauty again.

The Beauty of Being in the world
And I sixty- six years old, and more.

And pays us but with earth and dust;
