A Few Valuable Gems from the World of Wisdom
(Our Senior Editor, Mr. Thomas Philip Ranni has forwarded a beautiful Poem. Let us enjoy this great poem.)New World


In the Yiddish song “ My little one” a Father to his sleeping child:

I have a son, a little son,
A boy completely fine,
Whenever I see him, it seems to me
That all the world is mine.

But seldom, seldom do I see
My child awake and bright.
I only see him when he sleeps;
I ‘m only home at night
It’s early when I leave for work;
When I return, it is late.
Unknown is my child’s face
When I come home so wearlily
In the darkness after day,
My pale wife exclaims to me;
“ You should have seen our child Play”
I stand beside his little bed;
I look and try to hear.
In his dream he moves his lips;
“Why isn’t Papa here”.
-JEFFREY K. SALKIN
This song was written in 1887.
