I Will Carry Your Name

Translated from the Hebrew by Michal Fram-Cohen

I will carry your name on poetry's wings,
      and plant it beyond the span of this era,
and bring it, full of splendor and grace,
      to the far, mysterious tomorrow.

Like a precious pearl in the depth of the sea,
      like a wary kiss to the bride,
I will give it for eternal keeping
      to a better, nobler time.

And your name shall live and flourish forever,
      its lovely wreath glittering above.
Each heart shall yearn to it, each knee shall bow,
      in the kingdom of beauty and love.
