Within The Din / Linda Imbler  מתוך ההמולה – לִינְדָה אִימְבְּלֶר

His soul heard no welcome, only murmurs.

It seemed he heard sweet singing.

The hope that he was right stayed his sorrow.

His bedimmed dreams came as angels.

As death became his friend.

He saw his own grace.

And all of sweet peace wailed for him.  

And within the din, welcome finally
 showed its hand.
