יְרוּשָׁלַיִם 1967
יְרוּשָׁלַיִם נְמוּכָה וּכְפוּפָה בֵּין הָרֶיהָ שֶׁלּא כִּנְיוּ-יוֹרְק, לְמָשָׁל.
לִפְנֵי אַלְפַּיִם שָׁנָה הִתְכּוֹפְפָה לְעֶמְדַּת-זִנּוּק נִפְלָאָה.
כָּל הֶעָרִים הָאֲחֵרוֹת יָצְאוּ לְסִבּוּבִים גְדוֹלִים בְּזִירַת הַזְמַן, נִצְחוּ אוֹ נֻצְחוּ וָמֵתוּ.
יְרוּשָׁלַיִם נִשְׁאֲרָה בִּכְפִיפַת-זִנּוּק:
כָּל הַנִצְחוֹנוֹת קְפוּצִים בָּה וַחֲבוּיִים בָּהּ. כָּל הַמַּפָּלוֹת.
כּחָה גְדֶל וּנְשִׁימָתָה שְׁקֵטָה
לְמֵרוֹץ אַף אֶל מִחוּץ לַזִירָה.
[תתימתו של של יהודה עמיחי]

Jerusalem 1967
Jerusalem is short and crouched among its hills,
Unlike New York, for example.
Two thousand years ago she crouched
In the starting-line position.
All the other cities went out, for long
Laps in the arena of time, they won or lost,
And died. Jerusalem remained in the starting-crouch:
All the victories are clenched inside her
Hidden inside her. All the defeats.
Her strength grows and her breathing is calm
For a race even beyond the arena.

Transiated by Y. A & Ted Hughes
