Treasure Island

Yehuda Amichai

(1924 - 2000 / Würzburg / Germany)

Do Not Accept

Do not accept these rains that come too late.
Better to linger. Make your pain
An image of the desert. Say it's said
And do not look to the west. Refuse

To surrender. Try this year too
To live alone in the long summer,
Eat your drying bread, refrain
From tears. And do not learn from

[Hata Bildir]
