Nature and the Poet
By S. Frug
 
MY Rabbi was Nature—she set me to learn,
She taught me to sing and she taught me to play,
  She taught me to think and to feel, day by day,
And all that is beautiful, swift to discern,
The heart must be fresh, and the brain clear and steady,        5
The scales and the measure be waiting and ready,
And I, after all, have become—why you know it;
A poet, my brothers, a poor Jewish poet.
