DPF / Yeshurun

For one of those days, from poetryfoundation.org.

from Memories Are A House / by Avot Yeshurun (1904-1999), translated by Leon Wieseltier

I do not deny that a man who reaches a certain age
can no longer hope
that those from whom he came will remain
still alive with him, as my mother once

wrote to me in one of the letters
of her twilight.
