FOR YEHUDA AMICHAI
Gabriel A. Levicky


When a poet dies,
Rewind his piercing fingers
And
Shout:
Open the gates!

When a poet flies by,
Brush your remaining hair
And
Build a tent 
In the heart of a new poem.

When a poet is born again,
Learn how to walk on the water
And
Reinvent long-lasting kisses.
