    There’s something about the Chanukah licht

    That hums and sings a lilting tune

    There’s something about the Chanukah licht

    That dances in the shadows of the moon

    There’s something about the Chanukah licht

    That whispers of hope, triumph and light

    There’s something about the Chanukah licht

    That enables and propels us to fight

    There’s something about the Chanukah licht

    That illuminates the darkest of places

    There’s something about the Chanukah licht

    That reflects on everyone’s faces

    There’s something about the Chanukah licht

    That hints at ideas that are lofty and deep

    There’s something about the Chanukah licht

    That begs us its heritage to keep

    There’s something about the Chanukah licht

    And as I ponder what the something may be

    I look at the candles and take in the sight

    And realize the something I see

    There’s something about the Chanukah licht

    It’s the flame that we have in our soul

    There’s something about the Chanukah licht

    It makes us feel so loved and whole

    There’s something about the Chanukah licht

    It’s there and I promise it’s real

    There’s something about the Chanukah licht

    That I can’t tell you, but you can feel

    So sweet! I just started reading Why We Rejoice (a week late, I’m catching up) and your poem and the sefer seem to complement each other so beautifully.

    This is gorgeous, Chagit! I love the rhythm; It’s the perfect “feel” for a poem about the Chanukah licht.

    That last line- so true! What is that feeling? Trying to pin point it—is it hope? Faith?
