My old headmaster Moshe

Moshe Ganz, sweeping the leaves,


ankle-high in flood-water,


Kippah hanging from thinning hair.


Wry smile,

Ginger moustache

and freckles.


On Fridays and other occasions

he would get-out his accordion

and play



I remember his expression – ‘yofi’


punch on the shoulder.


All these,

components of leadership,

brought back to me this evening

listening to

John Williams.
