Day of Atonement: Standing

Eli Mandel


My Lord, how stands it with me now
Who, standing here before you
(who, fierce as you are, are also just).
Cannot bow down. You order this.
Why, therefore, I must break
If bend I will not, yet bend I must.
But I address myself to you thus.
Covered and alert, and will not bare
My self. Then I must bear you,
Heavy as you are.
