"Gone now are those little towns where the shoemaker was a poet,The watchmaker a philosopher, the barber a troubadour.
Gone now are those little towns where the wind joinedBiblical songs with Polish tunes and Slavic rue,Where old Jews in orchards in the shade of cherry treesLamented for the holy walls of Jerusalem.
Gone now are those little towns, though the poetic mists,The moons, winds, ponds, and stars above themHave recorded in the blood of centuries the tragic tales,The histories of the two saddest nations on earth."
