Contents: From My yellow gown (1966): Still from Drowned in the window (1969): All alone ; I was found from Seats in the desert (1973): I have no man but the void ; I slowly touch the footfalls ; My love ; Alone. From Tree touches tree (1978): I loosened the buttons of my dress ; Make me into a river ; Die in me ; The girl who drowned in the well ; Miriams well ; Fastening the Light of the Sabbath Candles ; The song to Jacob who moved the stone from the mouth of the well ; The stripes in Josephs coat ; Rachel cried there for her children ; A drunken clown hugged me in the street ; And Lots wife was created into a pillar of salt ; I nurse a very old woman ; Next to my God ; They said redemption would come ; Their bodies getting thinner and their hair becomes letters ; Never will I be like the mother in the picture. From The sounds toward them (1982): And all the people were seeing the sounds ; The man in charge of the flying letters ; I and a circumcised man ; King Solomon who remained in the language of the animals & fowl ; The fish that swallowed Jonah ; Lest it be revealed ; A stone with a wild beard ; I stayed in charge of the city to guard it ; These mountains ; When my father died&my forehead died in me ; So, by the altar ; Ill cast down my plea ; My God breathes by my side ; Kingdom ; In the beginning God created. From Poems of stone mothers (1987): And you shall teach ; The fire, blushing from fear ; Moses took ; I told him father ; From poems of stone mothers ; Oh, my mother ; He who bit me at night ; Isaac ; The crying half ; Noah ; The king wrinkled ; The God of pears ; His grandfathers face ; Elul ; Who will take us? ; I need nothing ; Ruth ; And so he stayed within me a number of years ; Where did its redness come from ; That very night ; To burn ; My shadow returned. From Place, tiger (1994): Pit ; Beyond this ; Behind ; The hard rock ; Dust ; Shma Yisrael, in the depths of our home ; Happy are they. From Nearby was the east (1996): With the passing of the years ; I revealed to the fish ; Ancient ; Jerusalem ; Defect ; Deeds ; Partialness gathered ; Shut! From Resting Jew (2000): Question ; I wont abandon you ; Again the tree comes to me ; The Jew is resting ; At twilight. Samuel and Simon, Solomon and Moses ; In this room ; To finish me off ; Out of so much love the lover vanished. From Said the investigator (2005): Wonder ; Wonder ; The investigator at the door knocks and waits ; What does a person do who doesnt know how to die ; Who is your mother? My mother asked me ; I spread out Gods names in front of me ; We didnt get used to dying ; My life history scrutinizes me ; Jewish man, I said. From Baal-Hanes and other bypassers (2006): Three sit down at the Rabbis table ; Midnight, at the Rabbis door ; The blind man only dreams with eyes open ; And Leibish, Mother's uncle, who ran wrapped in a tallit. From My father commanded me not to die (2007): During this entire period someone looks at us from the hills ; The community elders stand at our doorstep ; And still that someone looks at us from the hills ; The poems here are about our family ; And in the inner room we guard the heaviness of the mouth ; One day the Torah will leave us to go forward ; Everything that was flesh of your flesh, says Johathan ; Chayas unborn child ; And Shalom, Chayas husband ; Tell me, Grandma asked ; A slightly round woman, with gray hair The poem knows: excerpts from an interview with Rivka Miriam.
