The Place Where We Are Right

POETRY FORMAT, 28 Aug 2017

Yehuda Amichai – TRANSCEND Media Service

“From the place where we are right
flowers will never grow
in the Spring.

The place where we are right
is hard and trampled
like a yard.

But doubts and loves
dig up the world
like a mole, a plough.

And a whisper will be heard in the place
where the ruined
house once stood.”
