    Poem of the Month, March 2015: If a White Horse from Harmonious Jerusalem

    We wish our readers a happy and peaceful Passover/Easter, with this updated version of Ada Aharoni’s “If a White Horse from Harmonious Jerusalem.” The poem is inspired by a white runaway horse that found its way to her street in Haifa early one morning. “It smiled at me,” she says.


    By Ada Aharoni

    If a white horse from harmonious Jerusalem,
    strides so happily
    in the early dawn hours
    of my own street,
    as if it were the ocean,
    as if it were the sky –
    then all is possible…

    Perhaps, he has come
    with his magic wings
    to make all weapons vanish
    to bring global peace
    and to make you fly with me
    before my hair falls
    before my breath whistles

    Perhaps he will lift us high
    with his peaceful white wings
    and raise the world to a joyful
    year 2015 beyond war
    beyond violence, beyond famine –
    crown us with a new
    global world of happiness

    For if a white horse
    from harmonious Jerusalem
    flies so joyfully
    into my own life
    in my own street
    as if it were the ocean,
    as if it were the sky

          Then all is possible…
