On the cover:
אַתְ נִרְדַּמְּתְּ, וַאֲנִי אֶכָּנֵס וְאֵשֵׁב.
לָרִצְפָּה אֵשֵׁב
לְהַבִּיט עָלַיךְ.
שׁוֹתֵק וְנָכְרִי, בְּחַדְרֵךְ הַשָׁלֵו
אֲחַכֶּה לָךְ כְּמוֹ נְעָלַיִךְ.

נתן אלתרמן,
כּוֹכָבִים בַּחוֹץ, 1938

The tiles in Antin Square, which is located at the entrance to Tel Aviv University, include covertions and comments by scientists and other intellectuals.

In the current tile appears a verse from the song you hear it wrote Natan Alterman in the collection of songs Stars Outside.

Three months later, the tiles were photographed in the same square. During the photograph, it was discovered that a number of tiles had been removed and replaced by other tiles . In this tile the design is different, see the other tile Click for cover's details

Translation of the text on the cover:
You fall asleep and I go in and sit down.
I will sit on the floor
Look at you.
Silent and alien in your peaceful room
I’ll wait for you like your shoes.

Natan Alterman,
Stars Outside, 1938
