A Soldier and a Poet by Avraham Yair Stern

A Soldier and a Poet

“Soldiers without names or uniforms are we, surrounded by terror and death.

For the rest of our lives we are enlistees, discharged from the ranks with our last breath.”

Out of the turmoil of the battlefield rises a brave young voice of human reflection from decades past.

Avraham “Yair” Stern was the epitome of a poet. He was a young man who had seen so much, fought for his country and people, and endured grief while always holding fast to hope.

Stern’s poems, inspired and imbued by his experience as a young revolutionary leader in the years leading up to the establishment of the State of Israel, tell an eloquent and emotional story of passion and insight. Relatable and unapologetically human, he lays out his experiences of love, faith, companionship, loyalty, and self-discovery in dozens of works of elegant prose that remain hauntingly relevant today.
