from James Stone Goodman

Turning 10.10
Why I Wear A Tallit At Night

My tallit is white wool [TZeMeR]
I wear it in the nighttime once a year
When I am drawing down G*d's complete mercy
On my Life.

Out of the narrowness [MeiTZaR] I call on You
When I am in meitzar I need compassion
Drawn down from within my cloak of tzemer
My sins turn white the nature of my deeds Transformed --

Narrowness and Wool meitzar and tzemer
That's why I wear
A tallit
White

At night.

Though your sins are as scarlet, they shall become like wool Is.1:18
From the narrowness I called G*d Ps.118:5
