Most of the poems presented here are from Rosenfarb's last book of poetry, Aroys fun gan-eydn (Out of Paradise, 1965). The ghetto poems are from the volume Di balade fun nekhtikn vald (The Ballad of Yesterday's Forest). The poems have been arranged so that they follow roughly the chronology of Rosenfarb's life, beginning with the poems she wrote in the Lodz ghetto as a young girl and moving to the more mature poems of her years in Canada.
Praise likewise the day/ standing still as a water--/ a mirror without a reflection./ Though hours that glide/ through its hazy-pale surface/ like breath-carried skaters/ are shunning the lighted eye of awareness,/ erasing their footprints/ before they are falling--/ Praise likewise that day/ you will never remember.
