Lamentation by Joan Cole

Artwork Narrative:

She weeps bitterly in the night 
And her tears are on her cheeks;
She has none to comfort her 
Among all her lovers. 
All her friends have dealt treacherously with her; 
They have become her enemies.
(Lamentations 1:2)

His feast day is August 1.

How lonely sits the city
That was full of people!
She has become like a widow
Who was once reat among the nations!
She who was a princess among the provinces
Has become a forced laborer!
She weeps bitterly in the night
And her tears are on her cheeks;
She has none to comfort her
Among all her lovers.
All her friends have dealt treacherously with her;
They have become her enemies.
Judah has gone into exile under affliction
And under harsh servitude;
She dwells among the nations,
But she has found no rest;
All her pursuers have overtaken her
In the midst of distress.
The roads of Zion are in mourning
Because no one comes to the appointed feasts.
All her gates are desolate;
Her priests are groaning,
Her virgins are afflicted,
And she herself is bitter.
Her adversaries have become her masters,
Her enemies prosper;
For the Lord has caused her grief
Because of the multitude of her transgressions;
Her little ones have gone away
As captives before the adversary.
All her majesty
Has departed from the daughter of Zion;
Her princes have become like deer
That have found no pasture;
And they have fled without strength
Before the pursuer.
(Lamentations 1: 1-6)
