Poem by Dahlia Ephrat

Bialik/ Take Me Under Your Wings.

Take me under your wings,

Be to me mother and sister.

your bosom shelter my head, Let

Nestle my banished prayers.

Then in twilight, the hour of mercy,

Bend down to me, my anguish I'll tell thee:

There is Youth in the world, they say.

My youth – where is it?

And another secret I'll tell:

My soul, it is all burnt out.

There is Love in the world, they say.

Love – what is it?

The stars have all deceived me.

There was a dream, it too has passed.

I have not a thing in the world now.

I have nothing, at last.

Take me under your wings,

Be to me mother and sister.

Let your bosom shelter my head,

Nestle my banished prayers. Alibris: Books, Music, & Movies
