Crow In, Crows Out

                            To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else.
                                                                           Emily Dickinson

This is from the short lived poet and paratroper Hannah Senesh

A walk to Caesarea

My God, My God,
I pray that these things never end,
The sand and the sea,
The rustle of the waters,
Lightning of the Heavens,
The prayer of Man,

The voice called, and I went.
I went, because the voice called.

A harmony of poems, thank you both!

Alon, thanks for the lovely poem and link. Yes, she was one of the righteous, that's for sure.

Don't you mean crows in, crows out?

Anon: No, there's one (fake) crow inside, three outside. Guess I'd better go put a comma in the title if that'd make it clearer?
