JEWISH LULLABY, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Husha, o husha
Last Line: Will envy my son.
Alternate Author Name(s): Lewis, Michael
Subject(s): Jewish Families; Mothers & Sons

Husha, O husha,
And lull-lullaby;
No mother in Russia
Is prouder than I.
You stumble no longer,
Soon you will run;
And you will grow stronger
Than Samson, my son.

You will be famous,
Your thoughts will go wide;
Isaiah and Amos
Will walk at your side.
Your words will be graven
In metal and stone;
And the Great Ones in Heaven
Will envy my son.
