Widow’s song from Ukraine. A young woman is walking, carrying her son. She stops to feed him and asks, “Oh, my young son, where has your father gone?” An eagle flying overhead calls down to her, telling her he knows where her husband has gone, for the raven has scattered his bones over the dry riverbeds and his dark hair over the green fields.
