Cairo Genizah : Poetry

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Four poems, the first, rhymed in -o, is poorly preserved. The second was written for Isaac b. Ḥasan al-Andalūsī (לאיש חכמה ירש), described in the poem as R.

Zalzala is mentioned in superscription to the fourth poem, which begins in the right-hand margin on verso.</p>
