He stands Alone
let that be said
above us all
leaders or led
Held his place
lofty alone
as we skirmished below
for decades on
Yes have I railed
And ranted too
held his feet to the fire
Till oft he turned blue

But any day of the week
there is none like him
as we come and go
to sink or to swim
Whence comes
his kind?
I do not know
When here and now
meets long ago?
or time and tide
weld in evenflow?

As I just said
I do not know
But this much is known
still is such a One
We the Light Seekers
He the Sun

* btw this was writ early in 2021; since then, in my reading, Noam is changed, along with the world, and that is his prerogative – in verse form, I can only say:
Thought I did Noam –
But, maybe, I didn’t really Noam?
