Jacob

 

That night I watched my son sleeping.

The hall light lit the room.

Near his head the window was

blanketed by a blue curtain.

The sky lay distant outside.

I thought of my childhood room

and of my fathers.

I am the Lord, the God of Abraham,

your father, and the God of Isaac,

the land on which you lie I will

give to you and to your descendants.
