Passover Matza and Bitter Herbs
Haim Nachman Bialik
Pesach, Matza and bitter herbs,
Passover with Elijah, bitterness.
Pesach, Matza and leavened bread,
These are bitterness.
Pesach, students, boys and girls
Go out, travel and wander
With counsellors – of either gender.
Pesach, Matza and bitter herbs.
Crossing the desert for
some forty years.
Thousands of people
roads filled with traffic
The children of Israel once again leave Egypt.
Crossing over to vacation towns.
Good and Kosher evenings may be found.
