This work is a dual- language selection from the twenty -odd volumes of poetry that Natan Yonatan published in his lifetime.

Natan Yonatan is like Yehuda Amichai , Leah Goldberg and also Bialik and Rachel a much loved and respected Hebrew poet whose poems made into songs became part and parcel of the everyday life experience of most Israelis. In this volume there are a number of such songs, songs played over and over again, some of which even have taken on a historic dimension. For instance 'Ha-Ish Ha-Hu' is the poem most associated with the life and death of Yitzhak Rabin.

Natan Yonatan was a poet of love and of nature. He too wrote many poems about his son and his sons friends. His son who fell in the Yom Kippur War is the subject of the deeply moving " Another Poem on Abasalom' " Your father loved in you all that he was not, / See now this man trembles all over. Why/ Did you think I would make you king?/

Yonatan was a well- known public figure in Israel for many years the editor of Sifriat Poalim, and President of the Writer's Association. He was an outgoing, vibrant personality who read his poems through many years up and down the land of Israel.

His poetry is infused with a certain kind of romantic longing. In his famous 'Hofim' poem one can feel the mixture of longing and sadness in the land and for the land and the human soul.

Without bombast and without pretentious proclamation he displayed his love and connection with the land of Israel, his intimacy with it through his very deep connection to different layers of the Hebrew language, Biblical, Mishnaic, modern.

It seems to me that his poetry in Hebrew has a melodiousness which is essentially untranslatable. And that the whole range of its intonation and special beauty can be felt only in Hebrew.

Nonetheless valiant efforts have been made here by translators Janice Rebibo, Richard Flantz , Mel Rosenberg, Karen Alkalay-Gut,Gidi Koren, and the poet's widow Nili Carmel-Yonatan.

I close by giving a sample, a translation of one of his best known poems. The translation was made by Janice Rebibo.

SHORES ARE SOMETIMES

Shores are sometimes longings for a stream that used to love

In these parts streams forsake us and dry up :

Once I saw a shore

deserted by its stream and forgotten

left with a broken heart of stones and sand.

So may a man

be left abandoned spent and worn

just like the shore.

Even sea shells

just like sea gulls or like the shores,

sea shells too are sometimes longings

for a home that used to be.

There the sea

alone its songs does sing.

Thus among the heart shells of a man his youth to him will sing.

Within the Song to Live is a beautifully crafted book, with excellent production values, and attractive Hebrew and English type. Unfortunately the poems within do not match the fine tuned quality of the physical book. Both in Hebrew and English, Yonatan's poems are sentimental and lack any bite. Technically they may be fine poems; the Hebrew is accomplished in a formal way. But overall his poems fail to present human emotion in any novel way. There is nothing new here. This collection fails to provide the reader with any visceral sense of what poetry is about: The primal hunch of something moving which we sense but can not fully understand.
