Grandmothers Who Left
by Gila Green

The Yemenites were very religious, like all those who left.
In the synagogue we sat on straw mats.
Grandmothers brought spices for havdalah and for Yom Kippur afternoons, like all those who left.
Grandmothers sold aromatic hilbe and schug and saluf; that gave you an appetite.
Grandmothers said: "My menucha, rest, will only be in Gan Eden, the Garden of Eden."
The grandmothers were holy people.
They came to greet the Messiah, like all those who left
