#2 Noah (Maqam Sigah)
Maqam Sigah - from the Persian 'third,' as it takes root from the third note of the Rast scale. Sigah is applied on holidays and for the third portions of some books of the Torah; this maqam is used for the cantillation of the Torah in Syrian tradition, and is closely associated with the holiday of Purim.
Noah - You Lovers of the Word
Or G*d Loves the Press
O Noah man
You staked out the Ark
Ark -- teivah
Teivah -- word
Also basket -- teivah where Mama
Placed the baby for safekeeping.
Then the man violated his salvation with silence
He could have argued to save the world
Noah man entered the Word
Come into the teivah
Use your words ...
G*d invited Noah into the word
The man made a window for the Ark
Made a light for the Ark too
A lower second and third levels he made
Words of higher and lower quality --
every word a universe
Interpret the word
come into the Ark, enter the Word
interpret the world.
A tzaddik in pelts
A righteous person in a fur coat
Saves one person --
Become a tzaddik in loshen
a tzaddik in language --
Leviticus Rabbah, chapter 27
