Every holiday makes life more special
And waters well the roots of one's relations.
Some are more and some are less essential,
Though all are built upon the same foundations.
Each holiday, of course, has its own story,
Religion, rites, meaning, icons, beauty,
Practices that perpetuate some glory,
All mitzvot combining joy and duty.
Still, if one's a bridge between two cultures,
Savoring the holidays of both,
One can see, beneath their varied pleasures,
Vaults haunted by the same primeval ghosts.
Each soul depends on holidays to be
Restored to an else unclaimed legacy.
