A Motherless Soft Lambkin by Christina Georgina Rossetti

Christina Georgina Rossetti

A motherless soft lambkin

Along upon a hill;

No mother’s fleece to shelter him

And wrap him from the cold: –

I’ll run to him and comfort him,

I’ll fetch him, that I will;

I’ll care for him and feed him

Until he’s strong and bold
