      Poetry Submission: Wanderers No More by Yehoshua Dalin


      Wanderers No More
      by Yehoshua Dalin

      Since the first Temple’s burning
      And the banishment of our nation
      So our people, turned to yearning
      To return to our proper station

      Our ethos, and our life
      Came to ebb, with the loss of our throne
      And the stillness of G-d’s people
      Came to stink, of dry bones

      When our dry bones turned to dust
      And the dust, to disappear
      The words of the Infinite
      Made us Live! Bade us Hear!

      And the dust turned into bone
      On it sinew burst anew
      In the only place worth being
      As a nation, as a Jew

      So come join me, fellow Jews, and
      Let us dance upon the land
      Let the desert rise to greet us
      With the blossoms of our hand

      We will burn the rags of exile
      We will bind this open sore
      We will shed this domicile
      And be wanderers no more!
