Poems for children
Hillel Omer was an Israeli poet who wrote under the pen name Ayin Hillel (the letter ayin being the initial of his surname). He is remembered primarily for his poems for children, which have become staples of the Israeli nursery. He was born in a kibbutz in the Valley of Jezreel. His most famous poem, Hanesher, ("The Eagle") is written in Biblical language, but expresses the doubts and disillusions of the twentieth century. He died in 1990.
