-  "Every evening, or the Jewish Ezra." Ezra is a name symbolic of the wandering Jew. "He said that he was alone, a singer from the distant land of Lithuania, where men die of hunger. She drew water from the well for him to drink, and then he went away. Now, each evening she returns to that well, to await his return."
