This fine art print illustrates the scene of the poem’s first stanza: the sun setting over the trees. The text is written in walnut ink, further drawing a connection between the words and the trees they represent. The poem describes the greeting of the Sabbath, and borrows words from the two liturgical poems “L’kha Dodi/ Come My Beloved” and “Shalom Aleikhem/ Peace Upon You” which also welcome the Sabbath Bride and angels, and are sung on the Sabbath evening.

Translation of the Hebrew:
The sun has already disappeared beyond the treetops, Come let us go and welcome the Sabbath queen. She is already descending, the holy, the blessed, And with her are angels, a host of peace and rest. Come now, come, O queen, Come now, come, O Sabbath bride, Peace be upon you, O angels of peace.
-Hayim Nahman Bialik (1873-1934) Israeli national poet
