Written for the Canadian singer Cantor Aviva Chernick. The title means "renew our days."




Chadesh Yameinu

I listen to your music
in March---
fittingly, as your name,
Aviva,
means springtime.

 

Let the sun see you,
your voice urges.

 

Your song is light to me,
the Hebrew words
are balm and blessing,
grace and gift.
