AND THE WORLD
I am most happy /
as I walk the seller
of sweets says
"friend" / and the
his awl and waxen
thread / reminds
me of tomorrow
and the world.
Happy is it to
shake your hand /
and to sing with
you, my friend /
smoke rises from
the furnace of life /
red red red the
Green grass and
yellow flowers /
smell of mist the
sun's light /
light of the day /
songs of life are
floating / like new
ships on a new
Tomorrow and the
world / and the
songs of life and
all my friends - /
Ah yes, tomorrow
and the whole
world / awake and
full of good life.
