Lost Children

Or הילדים האבודים (Hai-yelladeem ha-eebudeem)

By J.C. Ellis (Rated PG)

Falls my heart in th’ocean black!
My knees drop and I do lament!
A life was born and now ‘tis dead—
Nay! Not just one but twain are dead!
O my children! My bairns do sleep!
They sleep in soil so far yon;
Their graves I cannot look upon!
O Christ, I await thy return!
And then shall I their faces learn!
