Poem of the Week
December 10, 2017 to December 17, 2017

from Houses (Plural); Love (Singular)
by Chana Bloch and Chana Kronfeld, translating from the Hebrew by Yehuda Amichai

This snippet comes from Yehuda Amichai's poem "Houses (Plural); Love (Singular)", translated by Chana Kronfeld and the late Chana Bloch, from the 2001 Griffin Poetry Prize shortlisted collection Open Closed Open. Brief and plainly stated, how does it manage to be so moving?
