by Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)

A motherless soft lambkin
Language: English 
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.
