Will forgiving and graceful days yet come,
When you will walk in the field like an innocent traveler,
Your bare foot will touch the grass,
Or the spica's thorns will prick you, and the pricking will be sweet?
Wishing you a Shabbat Shalom and a meaningful Tisha b’Av.
A Poem by Leah Goldberg (1911–1970)
