Chag sameach. Happy 66th birthday Israel.

https://jewsdownunder.wordpress.com/2014/05/05/chag-sameach-happy-66th-birthday-israel/

 

To My Country — Rachel.

Israeli FlagI have not sung you, my country,
not brought glory to your name
with the great deeds of a hero
or the spoils a battle yields.

But on the shores of the Jordan
my hands have planted a tree,
and my feet have made a pathway
through your fields.

Modest are the gifts I bring you.
I know this, mother.
Modest, I know, the offerings
of your daughter:

Only an outburst of song
on a day when the light flares up,
only a silent tear
for your poverty.
