How many ways I have seen


Its ancient stones

         like gold in the sun

Paintings of wailers

         taken to Babylon

How many people have been

         carried off


Roman crucifixes rising

         like towers to heaven

Paintings of angels

         to protect the city

         halos to light the dark

Paintings of Saracens

         breaching walls

Paintings of Crusader churches

         rising, burning

The Western Wall remains

         rock and root of a people

         their tribute:

B’Shanah Haba, B’Yerushalim

*A Note From the Publisher - February 8, 2012*


Dear readers and contributors,

The New Vilna Review has been going through some changes the past few

poetry, fiction and arts writing. We are once again accepting submissions,

and look forward to continuing to publish some of the most interesting and

thought provoking work in the world of Jewish arts and letters.
