In Disguise

Each day, a certain hour:
I doff the royal mantle,
Take up the wanderer's staff,
Step out beneath my lintel.

I roam through markets, streets,
Past each walled house alone;
Each watchdog barks at me,
Each youngster throws a stone.

Strange latches scorch and scald;
Wounds come when the stone flies —
By now more than one king
Has wandered in disguise.

At God's command! Let him lead me
Wherever, however he wants .. .
I will not stand against him, but
Walk after him with confidence

I'm Not Rich

I'm not rich: I've one coat for home,
For synagogue and for the road;
I trade in it on market days,
On feast days pray in it to God.

And all the mud from autumn rain
And gutter-splashes: all the soaps
Will not wash off a single stain.. .

Arrive in heaven's promised land.

On mountaintops, in deep ravines,
With my eyes open — and yet- blind;
In wild beasts' lairs; the Father leads —
And the child softly treads behind.

both in the "Voices" volume
as well as in the bilingual
book of his selected poems
published posthumously in
Israel, in their original Yid-

Melzer.
It was thanks to his
