Jack Greene: Kaddish for my Father

Spring '14 TOC

father’s foot
cut
through water


kept its
beat
in water


cherished
warmth
of water


pouring
down
on him


draining
under
him


Out through
water into
song


where one
belongs—


song


house on hill
sky and sea—


song


sun and moon
leaf on tree—


song


father’s foot
a constant
song


even now
with him
gone


song


father lived
and died
in


song


sing on
old man sing
on
