Neglected Child

hush little baby
cry no more
nobody will come to care
no love for you
no mother’s touch
no cradle for you there
scant the mark
your pitiable life
upon the languorous clock
still you cry
for meagre touch
for love you might unlock
just turn and
hush little baby
turn your face to the wall
and wait for
the day that you
will grow to walk tall
