Landing

one spoon
for Mommy one spoon
for Daddy a spoonful  
for Granny one spoon for my sis
here comes the airplane
and when it landed I had
no one left

כַּפִּית אַחַת
לְאִמָּא כַּפִּית אַחַת
לְאַבָּא כַּפִּית מְלֵאָה לְסַבְתָּא
כַּפִּית אַחַת לַאֲחוֹתִי כַּפִּית
אַחַת עָשְׂתָה אֲוִירוֹן
וּכְשֶׁנָּחֲתָה לֹא הָיָה לִי
אַף אֶחָד
