Miriam Rivka - FV
Her name is Miriam Rivka* *'Rivka' is Yiddish for 'Rebecca.'
Her grandmother's, Rivka Miriam
a woman as pure and innocent at eighty
as her granddaughter at age eight
Even at eight weeks a foreshadowing
Miriam Rivka, sleeping in her crib, her right hand
positioned in the air just so, gracefully, as cherubically
as Rivka Miriam had always held hers
all those years
