Israeli Poetry with Rachel Korazim - Shared screen with speaker view
I believe this poem was recited by Rabin when he received the Nobel Peace Prize.
"Sort of Apocalypse" should be, "Spring of End of Days"
or A kind of end of days
this is a reversal of the prophrcy as the ploughshare revert to swords, so it cannot be the end of days.
and this one was sung when he was murdered
Important to note, the narrator of the words of the poem are the dead themselves.
let the sun shine
A SONG FOR PEACEJacob RotblitYair RosenblumLet the sun riseAnd give the morning light,The purest prayerWill not bring us back.He whose candle was blown outAnd was buried in the dust,A bitter cry won't wake himWon't bring him back.Nobody will return usFrom the dead dark pitHere - neither the victory cheerNor songs of praise will help.So sing only a song for peace,Do not whisper a prayer.Better sing a song for peaceWith a big shout.Let the sun penetrateThrough the flowers,Don't look backwardLeave those who departed.Lift your eyes with hope,Not through the rifle sights.Sing a song for love,And not for wars.Don't say the day will come,Bring the dayBecause it is not a dream,And within all the city's squares,Cheer only peace.So sing only a song for peace,Do not whisper a prayer.Better sing a song for peace,With a big shout.
songs of praise is Hallel...a very Jewish image
when we pray for the dead, say Kaddish, it’s not to bring the dead back. so?
"bring the day" should be "YOU bring that day" mk

This is what we are feeling today. The magnolia trees are in innocent bloom while our world is in chaos and at a standstill,
The same idea about the wheat still growing while the soldiers are dead and will not return is found in Gouri's HsRe'ut.
