Yehuda Amichai: “A Man in his life”
A man in his life-
the first temple is destroyed and the second temple is destroyed,
but he must remain in his life.
That is not like what happened to a nation
that went into exile over there,
that is not like what happened to the Lord
who simply ascended to lofty locales.
A man in his life
revives the dead in a dream
and buries (them) in his second dream.
Translated by M. Salomon
