"Holy, holy, holy."

Now that whole chunk of the liturgy is stuck in my head while I'm slacking off at work, which makes me feel even guiltier about it than usual.

Ack, sorry. This series does seem to be ... mentally sticky. Famous liturgy can do that, even in small pieces, because it has so much weight behind it. There are more quotes in some of the other poems too.

S'okay. I seriously drilled/had to drill that whole chunk of morning prayers into my head as a kid. I actually wanted to be clergy for a while - probably not the brightest of ideas.

I do too. In Hebrew, no less, courtesy of my mind's internal translator. Kadosh, kadosh,kadosh adonai tsiva'ot, m'al kol ha aretz k'vodoh :)

Adir adiranu HaShem elohanu. Fortunately, I get fuzzy for a little bit and won't go wandering off into the rest of the service.

Yay!

It's so cool how a poem can get people thinking about things, including other languages.
