Love from his small body.

MY FATHER

The memory of my father is wrapped up in
white paper, like sandwiches taken for a day at work.
Just as a magician takes flowers and rabbits
out of his hat, he drew love from his small body,
and the rivers of his hands
overflowed with good deeds.

-Yehuda Amichai (1924 – 2000) Israel
