Joseph Friedlander, comp.  The Standard Book of Jewish Verse.  1917.
 
Israel Mocked
Anonymous
 
“WHY so sad, thou princely child?”
Moloch’s servants scornfully chide,
Times appear and pass away
Why does son of Jesse hide?
If your God in Heaven’s height        5
Will bring you to His holy hill
Wherefore then we seek to know
Why His chariots linger still?
 
I hoped that all my foes
Would see my swift redemption;        10
But they mock and say: “Away as a cloud
It passeth; no hope is left for thee.”
I hearken shame-filled, and my tears
Flow unresistingly.
