Dvarim: "Words"
Deuteronomy 1:1 - 3:22

Land

Far more precious than gold

Its fertility ripe as a pregnant woman
bringing forth a child bursting with seeds

If only the birth pangs are heeded

Listened to as melodiously as the ram’s horn

And so the L-rd reveals how He will lead the people

Granted through the lands of others

Tearing down walls

Emerging from them victorious upon the other side

Offering them a world to have and hold

As a bridegroom does his betrothed

Together bound by the hand of the L-rd

And His hungry
seeking children

Follow His call

His voice

As He guides them

Leads them

From land to land

That they might commence their 39 year traverse

And discover upon the dawn at their rising 40th

Soil rich in their past travels
their future blossoming

To travel not only with success in mind

But with a return to the homeland G-d has assigned
