Treasure Island

Herbert Nehrlich

(04 October 1943 / Germany)

La Seine


There once was a fellow named Harris,
a comedian whose wife was called Clarice.
They performed on a stage
with old Rolf in a cage
and she took him (so clever) to Paris.

On the top of the Eiffel Tower
when the clock struck the twenty-third hour,
he was left in the rain
looking down on the Seine
but he really had needed the shower.

How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
