Sukkot Poem

L’Shana Hava’ah B’Yerushalayim

img_6446

Pomegranates, grapes, figs and dates

Harvest is here, appointed time to celebrate

Rehearsals festivals, God’s Mo’edim

Time to live and show what we did glean

 

We’re off to Jerusalem the pilgrimage, with alms

Lift high lulavs of citron, myrtle, willows, and palms

Hallel recitation with gladness and singing

God’s holy convocation in our hearts are ringing

 

Rock hewn pool of living water, City of David

From Siloam, water drawn, libation awaited

Procession from the pool, virgin waters run clear

Joyous anticipation, morning time so dear

 

This is The Lords season and we are secure

Simchot Torah, Thy word, my feet dancing for sure

Prayers for rain for next year’s harvest season

Never halfhearted, we have purpose and reason

 

Shemini Atzeret- prayers to The Lord, for rain

I pray we have all grown, never to be the same

Harmonious agreement, our prayers rising in unison

Until we all meet again, Next year in Jerusalem
