Abby Sale Any traditional leap year songs? (12) RE: Any traditional leap year songs? 28 Feb 20


1. Shaker founder Ann Lee b2/29/1736 (d9/8/1784)
        I will bow and be simple,
        I will bow and be free,
        I will bow and be humble,
        Yea, bow like the willow tree.

2. Losing an arm and decorated for heroism in the Russo-Japanese war, Joseph Trumpeldor became the 1st Jewish officer in the tsarist armies. Leader of Jewish Legion at Gallipoli, defence corps leader in the Galilee, Trumpeldor was killed in battle at Tel Chai at age 40 (2/29/1920)

        B'chol makom, uv'chol rega, tizk'ru oti,
        Ki nilchamti, v'gam nafalti, b'ad molad'ti!
        Kol hayom ani charashti, uvalayla,
        K'ney rovi b'yadi achazti ad harega ha-achron."

        Every place and every hour, remember me, remember me,
        For I battled and I fell for my Galilee.
        I plowed the land,I watched my land,
        And fell with the rifle in my hand.

                "B'tel Chay," A Treasury of Jewish Folksong,
                Ruth Rubin
