An Angel Holds A Small Child's Hand


An angel holds a small child's hand
And walks with him wherever he goes-

How many Jewish childrens' angels
Disappeared at the critical moment?

I had an angel once too
I long since have forgotten it-

I am an old man now
I do not need an angel-

But the children
need angels
better angels than there have been before-

Will God provide them?

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
