"Around My House"

Dedicated to Hadar who asked me if I would ever ... this is my answer.

Around my house ere dusk fell,

my Kallah I await these words would tell.

Then awoke memories of moments recall

the evergreen stands and Ben so small.

I stand and marvel at how it has grown!

Twenty years hence many seeds have sewn!

The old basketball hoop ...there once a time

when I could beat Ben, a moment sublime.

In memory's flight, I see only me,

in this house once lived my children three.

Under Ben's window standing,

wouldst I not know

that wherein I now sit,a few tears did flow.

I stepped back ...to now and saw I did come

my Kallah

for whose love

my heartbeat

did

drum.
