Holaich VeChazaik
(Growing Ever Stronger)

follow the lines down
pages flowing
back through ages
commentary to makor
pasuk, word, letter
even to the Pintele Yid
echo an ancient shofar
blast growing while blowing
announcing a Decalogue
introducing a dialogue
that will never leave mouths
debating, deliberating
in the din of batei medrush
attempting to divine the Divine
