Praying is another way of singing.You plant in the tree the soul of lemons.You plant in the gardens the spirit of roses.
Poem Song for Dov Shamir in: Dannie Abse (1963), Dannie Abse, p. 8
You sod, Leave my soul alone, leave my soul aloneDannie Abse
And silence matched the silence under snow.Dannie Abse
I know the colour rose, and it is lovely,But not when it ripens in a tumour.Dannie Abse
