What At My Age Can A Purim Poem Be?

Poem By Shalom Freedman

What at my age can a Purim poem be?

The small children the grandchildren
The gratitude for their very existence
For our being here in Israel

Hamans there are in spades
But we are here
Stronger than before

A prayer that the younger generations
Will go on to good and blessed lives

For generation upon generation
When I am no longer here
The people of Israel will thrive
And bring goodness and blessing to the world.

Because they helped me feel more alive
They gave me an intensity

Many have won prizes

Nothing Tells Me How To Begin Again

Nothing tells me how to begin again
Or even how to try

And how can I expect to do at the age of seventy- five?

I Must Continue To Write

There will always be another poem
And with that poem- hope
However absurd-
So even if I despair
