Poetical Musings from an old translation of a Jewish hymn "Yigdal" ...

The First to Be …


Gaze far away into the skies you’ll see

The vastness of limitless divine reach

Illumine mine eyes oh twinkling stars this night

May I merit to learn the lessons You teach.

first of circles You drew without compass or

pen …

galactic orbs you cast far beyond sight.

Soaring  toward endlessness at heavenly speed,

I pray to fathom the ways of your might.

A house for man from words you did utter

with neither roof nor walls a world you conceive.

From darkness each night, the moon but an
ember ...

Master of The Universe … in Thee, I believe.

in morning to sounds of the dawn

our lips with gratitude but of bitterness none,

by His grace a new day to us He hath given

Be as He, the first to be though He had never


*This last verse is based on an old translation of a verse from the Jewish hymn “Yigdal”.

With neither walls nor roof a house doth stand
