Winds near Heschel's Grave
Stark winds blowing across the fields and streets
The grave of that honorable rabbi is covered with leaves
Very difficult to live up to such piety
But some grasp that the essence is what must be grasped
Instead of the "outer shell"
As I pick up a pen
to express myself
I must tell you
Fanaticism is not good - not good at all
