Observations on Jerusalem at twilight and a dialogue

When did flocks leave the streets of Jerusalem? We got up at dawn and there weren't any flocks in the streets of Jerusalem. When were wolves silent through the nights of Jerusalem? The night that we woke and the desert withdrew from the edge of Jerusalem. When did camel trains quit the streets of Jerusalem? Yesterday an old man died who saw camels stroll in the squares of Jerusalem. And mad dogs? Are there any still in Jerusalem? I saw a covered well and there's the new moon. Why shouldn't there be mad dogs in Jerusalem? And when is nothing more bright than Jerusalem? Whenever her people say to each other We're on our way home, we'll turn on the light.
