reread this afternoon

in a man's life

In a man's life
the first temple is detroyed and the second temple is destroyed
and he must stay in his life,
not like the people that went into exile
far away,
and not like God,
who simply rose to higher regions.

In a man's life
he resurrects the dead in a dream
and in a second dream he buries them.

-- Yehuda Amichai

(some consider him the greatest poet in hebrew lit.)
