"That We Are Like Fire"
That we are like Fire,
lithe and flaxen, wielding in the wind;
joy is a city gate rising
from the horizon, smiling
at the abandoned feet...
Behold a people in Akedia's bed...
None will each upon themselves take
the city by David's lyre——
yet when the city bathes in Fire,
from Goliath's ashes rise.
