Rustaveli's Legacy

Medieval Georgia
was good to us, it seems
to a forthright on- loan poet
at your country's golden age
who asked to dream
for light across the sky
to deposit his words
now buried with you
in the Monastery of the Cross
visiting you like Nicodemus
at night
in a neighborhood
by the Israeli museum.
