These children are not abandoned. A woman is among them. She's is nursing a baby. They appear to be awaiting the return of the adults.
They are not upset. They are chattering, playing knucklebones. One of them hoisted himself near to the tree. He's wearing an adult hat, much too large for him! He's not playing war. He does not have a weapon in his hand... He seems to be watching for the return of the adults...
Two carts surround a dead tree. But is that tree really dead? A healthy growth seems to sprout out of the trunk... A growth brimming with life! Perhaps it could be a symbolic image: Children, quite alive, in an almost dead universe...
I like these two children
