That Wall (1972)

That Wall

by Marc Mangel


Have you ever been at that wall

that wall standing alone

dripping of generations


have you every prayed at that wall

that wall so high and mighty

yet so humble filled

by the fillers of wish


have you ever danced at that wall

that wall wishing it could dance

petrified by time


have you ever sung at that wall

had your voice lost in time

to the wall of



have you ever felt at that wall

a pain deep yet not

a pain to burn the soul


have you ever met God at that wall

and known for once


October 1972
