Woe

The life of our mother Sarah  [nikpidu - meaning unclear] died suddenly
In our house, there is mourning when she had come [understood to
          mean - gone to her final resting resting place]
May she be glorified.  He took from our [           ], My horn [          ]
A prophet was the way of house in righteousness and Kasher
[Her conduct] was the way of modest women in both those things        
          revealed and those that are hidden
Her countenace was honorable each day
                  joy unto me,  the [earth’s season]

              Woe

The  life of Sarah the daughter of R Zadok
           the wife of R Judah
