J.B. Drori

Most cannot claim
The month of November
For their own.

Fewer could speak
Of its twenty-ninth day
With pomp and authority.

Still fewer would
Hoist their banner
Conjointly with others.

And how many could charge
The world to also mark the birth
Of a new/old nation - Yisrael - on that day?

Therefore, I say to you,
Fellow Sagittarius,
Aim your arrow true and high,

For the target is always
Beyond our vision,
And forever shrouded in illusion.
