Bread to Dust


Joseph Birnbaum

Tribute: To all those who call Jerusalem home.

Under the shade of an olive tree
'till sun to stars and bread to dust
I weep enough to catch the sea
Through wine and oil comes blood and lust

Give to these hills your loathsome hate
Then ask the wind where it goes
'tis sweet as figs under God's gate
To break your sword and burn your woes.
