I Christmas Poem for Nancy Noel, Noel We live and we die Between heaven and hell Between the earth and the sky And all shall be well And all shall be unwell And once again! all shall once again! All shall be well By the ringing and the swinging of the great beautiful holiday bell Of Noel! Noel! II Salute Valentine I'll drink to thee only with my eyes When two are three and four, And guzzle reality's rise and cries And praise the truth beyond surmise When small shots shout: More! More! More! More! III Rabbi to Preach Rabbi Robert Raaba will preach on "An Eye for an Eye" (an I for an I?) (Two weeks from this week: "On the Sacred Would") At Temple Sholem on Lake Shore Drive - Pavel Slavensky will chant the liturgical responses And William Leon, having now thirteen years will thank his parents that he exists To celebrate his birthday of manhood, his chocolate Bar Mitzvah, his yum-yum kippered herring, his Russian Corona.
