Dr. Eli’s Daughter Lana (11 Years Old) Publishes Her First Poem

Lana Lizorkin's first poemThis is one of my daughter’s first poems. I love it, I think you may like it too. (In Hebrew this piece is written out in acrostic that spells my daughter first and last name!).






I love to laugh
I also like to dance
My favorite season is spring

I like to blossom together with it
I know how to enjoy this blossoming too
This is my great joy

I am like a flower dancing in the wind
I am dancing and dreaming
Lite like a bird, knowing how to make friends happy
Nice and ready to always help.

ליצחוק אני אוהבת
נחמד לי גם לירקוד
העונה האהובה עלי היא אביב

לפרוח ביחד איתה נעים לי
יודעת אני ליהנות מהפריחה
זאת שמחה גדולה בשבילי
ואני כמו פרח רוקד ברוח
רוקדת וחולמת

קלה כמו ציפור
יודעת לשמח חברים
נאמנה ועוזרת תמיד

Me encanta reír
También me gusta bailar
Mi estación preferida es la primavera

Me gusta florecer junto a ella
Sé cómo disfrutar también de este florecimiento
Es mi gran alegría

Soy como una flor bailando en el viento
Estoy bailando y soñando
Liviana como un pájaro, sabiendo cómo hacer feliz a los amigos
Agradable y dispuesta a ayudar siempre.

    Shalom Dr. Eli,
    I read your daughter’s lovely poem to my mom, and it reminded us of when I first began my journey in writing poetry in my journals.
    Thank you for sharing her beautiful writing. She writes so freely from her heart that you can almost see her dancing like a bird on the wind, bringing joy to her family and friends. She must bring you and your wife such great blessing day by day. I trust she will have the deep, deep joy of dancing with Yeshua, there is nothing to compare with our Beloved’s embrace and the joy that ensues.
    You’re all in my prayers as הרוח הקדש brings you before me. May He keep you under the Almighty’s protecting shadow (Psalm 91).
    שלום בישוע המשיח,
    Michal מיכל

    “I know how to enjoy this blossoming too, this is my great joy!”
    Dear Lana, I don’t know how old you are, but I’d like you to know that today this was a word spoken right to the heart of a tired 50 year old lady who struggles with illness and had forgotten how to take joy in being the person God created her to be and in the creation He has made. She had grown stressed and worried and harried, her brow too often furrowed as she tried harder to measure up. This line has great truth in it. Thank you and I thank our Lord too, for reminding me that the fruit of God’s Spirit is also joy. We need only rest in His work for us and in us. Thank you.
