Brothers, or: Druthers

My 1st Goliardic verse

Shul* was once family; wherein all Jews were brothers
Rending hearts before God, He, One; there were no others;
We've maintained sense of kin, of siblings, fathers, mothers,
Still, communities waned, per most Jews' private druthers

          * shul = synagogue in Yiddish

FYI:

Festival of Shavuot (Pentecost)

The Jewish festival of Shavuot began at sunset on Sunday and ends at sunset on Monday. In terms of religious restrictions, this festival is similar to Shabbat (the Sabbath). Therefore, I have scheduled some blog posts (including this one) to go up in the meantime – I hope you enjoy them!

        while they’re in the oven, why not look at your Papa standing on the mountain, taking a photo?

  1. Love the monorhyme but have to give credit for the longer lines – 13 syllables is a stretch but you made it read natural and easy. Bravo!!
