Peace for Shlomit
Another year that passed from Sukkot to Sukkot
And Shlomit from the song continues to wait.
She brought a lulav, a hadas and etrog
And the sechach, fresh and green is resting above.
She invited neighbors and had a party inside
Yet only one, the main guest, had not yet arrived
And everyone tries to console: It's not so bad.
That's what happened last year, they had said.
And if this year he did not see it fit -
To come, you don't need him, you ought to admit
But little Shlomit is rigid and firm
She does not give up and constantly yearns
With local, regional and global good will
Peace in Shlomit's sukkah shall be fulfilled
