Playing Poetry – Every day I walk to your abode by Yaakov Fichman

Singer: Alon Eder
Music: Matti Caspi
Conductor: Guy Feder

There are happy loves, sad loves, and loves that are kept secret, loves that the lover is unable to utter. This four-letter word, which trembles on the lover’s lips, was the topic of the poem by Israel Prize laureate Yaakov Fichman, which we chose to share with you for Tu B’Av, the Israeli Holiday of Love.

“Every day I walk to your abode”, written by Jacob Fichman and composed by Matti Caspi, joins our series of Singing Poetry, a tribute to Israeli poets. The song tells of a love-struck young man, who is trying to find the courage to confess his love to his beloved.

Yaakov Fichman was active in the Israeli cultural and literary scene as a poet and author, critic and editor.

In 1957 he won the Israel Prize, and a year later died at age 77. His name was memorialized in streets of numerous cities, but today, over sixty years after his death, he is known to very few.

The song “Every day I walk to your abode” was composed by Matti Caspi and sung for the first time in an evening of poets’ songs of the Army Radio in 1973. It seems that even today, decades after the poet was an infatuated young man, Fichman’s tender words touch us and precisely convey this human feeling.

We wish you a happy and courageous Holiday of Love.
