In Hiding

You ask for my tear?
With the veil of my laughter
I have draped her

You ask for my blaze?
In the embers of my intellect
I have buried her

You ask for my storm?
In the depths of my sea
I have drowned her

Is it my song you seek?
In the fields of silence
I planted her.

From the Hebrew by Yanki Tauber
