At night he asked her to be his wife.
(while protecting her life)

And the next morning, he asked G-d for his needs.
(while confessing his deeds)



wait that was not supposed to rhyme. it takes away from the seriousness of it. oof!

Very interesting poem- it not only plays with the language through the rhyme but it is highly ambiguous- why did she need her life protected? Was it him? What were his needs/ deeds? The juxtaposition of the two stanzas seems to imply that the two events are related somehow, but as we know in modern poetry this is not necessarliy so. An interesting puzzle!

I don't get it either but it sounds spooky.

Now that I clicked on the pic, I see the connection to your post; it's a very moving picture; there is something about a chayal davening; it's a strength and softness whose combination is unmatchable!
