To Dana


You are the open gate of poetry
through whom West and East flow,
bowing as they pass, and passing,
they whirl, making way, and whirling,
they dance. Now tell me,
daughter of eternity,
how can this gate be either
in the East or in the West?
The cedar grows at the crossroad
of all paths.
Know your homeland.
