                                          MIDNIGHT FLIGHT TO TEL AVIV

                               Scoff  she did at friends now spirit filled 

                               Eyes were trained on tasks and money trails

                               Work was done and clean up for milk spilled

                               Never ending chores hit her like winter gales--

                               Promised visit found her jetting toward the sun

                               Heart was grabbed while she was somewhere in midair

                               Sabbath sent the holy airborne into whispering hum

                               Exchanging places through the night in black clad pairs--

                               From her feet she felt the wondrous change

                               Overcome infused with humble eager bliss--

                               Once announced in Hebrew airspace something strange

                               Israeli pride of kindred spirit touched her like a  kiss

                               Homebound Hebrews burst in song

                               Festive clapping, lively stomping feet

                               This exuberant joy could not be wrong

                               Such sweet passion was complete
