My old headmaster Moshe

Moshe Ganz, sweeping the leaves,

or

ankle-high in flood-water,

with

Kippah hanging from thinning hair.

 

Wry smile,

Ginger moustache

and freckles.

 

On Fridays and other occasions

he would get-out his accordion

and play

Klezmer.

 

I remember his expression – ‘yofi’

and

punch on the shoulder.

 

All these,

components of leadership,

brought back to me this evening

listening to

John Williams.
