A great calamity On the eve of the great joy (?) To eternity, she has gone to sleep Unto the universe, you taste Abundance, you were plucked away A tender boy, you foresaken [and his oppression?] my mother Gilah Raizah the daughter of R. Tzvi Saron The darkness of spring, were your days Thirty-six years was your life My eyes shed tears For you have gone up to heaven On the 22nd of Tevet 5669 (1909)
May your soul be bound in the bonds of heaven.
