A Second Bird (Tzipor Shniya)

A Second Bird (Tzipor Shniya)
Natan Zach \ Misha Segal
I saw a bird of great beauty
The bird saw me
A bird of such great beauty I will see no more
Until my dying day.

A quiver of sun then passed through me
I spoke words of peace
Words that I spoke yesterday
I shall not speak again today.
