There's something sad in being Sephardi,
and thinking of the cities I've left,
the glories of the past that I've lost,
and the solitude into which I've fallen
In all parts of the world I've lived,
and abandoned pieces of my soul,
and so I come, isolated, to say
that there's something sad in being Sephardi.
Where did you find this?
@derpayatz funny enough, i found the first verse on a wiktionary entry.
the second verse i found by googling the first. it's apparently in a couple anthologies of Ladino poetry.
@derpayatz it was really a beautiful poem, i really felt it
@derpayatz maybe a minor thing, but i had to personally transcribe the second stanza from Google Books and i misspelled "Sefaradi" as "Sefardi" due to being a native english speaker etc.
