Ach me-alfei dvarim yafim

SAILING SONG

SAILING DANCE 

All this happened a long long
time ago, years and years
A ship with three masts
was sailing the seas

Three masts this ship had
and golden sails
and on the deck
a peacock with a beautiful tail

Sailors and fisherman
In a big circle around
are impressed from its songs
They sing these songs out loud

And golden fishes with beautiful fins
Are rising from the deep
To hear a tale and a song
About a wave sling

And so the sailors sing
“The world is great
in it there are flowers and thorns
There is sea and there is land

There are waves and beaches
There is silence, there is storm
But the most beautiful thing
is the sailing itself

Because of the distance joy
And the wind in this sacred space
And between the seas and the sky
The ship would sale.

And if ghosts are picking
In this rough journey
Then, you should expect happier times ahead
And surprising encounters.

This is a glory song for sailing
in a clear starry night
The fishes would listen to this song
As well as the space around

All this happened a long long
time ago, years and years
A ship with three masts
was sailing the seas.
