Poet: Esther Shumiatcher-Hirshbein (1899–1980)

A small blade of grass crawls out from the earth—
Sleep, sleep my little one,
Lullaby my child.

To your crib,
Where you lie without swaddling,
Sheep and cattle come,
Lullaby my child.

The house is still without a roof,
Sleep then under the thatch,
Lullaby my child.

You will always be a wanderer,
You and I and others,
Lullaby my child.

Your father is in the field,
Father threshing with the oxen.
Lullaby my child.

The pea is happy in its pod;
From the field we will gain bread.
Lullaby my child.

Grow, my child, to adulthood,
The field awaits you.
Lullaby my child.

Poet: Esther Shumiatcher-Hirshbein (1899–1980)
