Artist's Description

The original pencil drawing is available here
Credits: Lullaby written in Yiddish by H. Lejwik (Lewi Halpern)

_My English translation attempt:
Lay your head on my knees – so it’s laying good
Small children fall asleep – Big ones have to be cradled
Children have toys -lots of toys – they can play whenever they want.
Grown-ups are themselves, their own toys – they always have to want more.

German translation by Selma Meerbaum-Eisinger
Leg den Kopf auf meine Knie, so ist es gut liegen.
Kleine Kinder schlafen schon, große muß man wiegen.
Kinder haben Spielzeug viel, spielen wann sie wollen.
Große sind sich selbst zum Spiel, müssen ewig wollen.
