PostSubject: Each Man Has A Name   Mon Mar 17, 2008 5:19 am

This poem was posted on Jforum I thought it was so beautiful it needs sharing.

Each Man Has A Name:



Each man has a name, given him by God

And given him by his father and mother.



Each man has a name given him by his stature

And his way of smiling,

And given him by his clothes.



Each man has a name given him by the mountains

And given him by his walls.



Each man has a name given him by the planets

And given him by his neighbours.



Each man has a name given him by his sins

And given him by his longing.



Each man has a name given him by his enemies

And given him by his love.



Each man has a name given him by his feast days

And given him by his craft.



Each man has a name given him by the seasons of the year

And given him by his blindness.



Each man has a name given by the sea

And given him by his death.



לכל איש יש שם

שנתן לו אלוהים

ונתנו לו אביו ואימו



לכל איש יש שם

שנתנו לו קומתו ואופן חיוכו

ונתן לו האריג



לכל איש יש שם

שנתנו לו ההרים

ונתנו לו כתליו



לכל איש יש שם

שנתנו לו המזלות

ונתנו לו שכניו



לכל איש יש שם

שנתנו לו חטאיו

ונתנה לו כמיהתו



לכל איש יש שם

שנתנו לו שונאיו

ונתנה לו אהבתו



לכל איש יש שם

שנתנו לו חגיו

ונתנה לו מלאכתו



לכל איש יש שם

שנתנו לו תקופות השנה

ונתן לו עיורונו



לכל איש יש שם

שנתן לו הים

ונתן לו
