Skeletons


Skeletons that march
Over the plain
Step after step
Like soldiers goose-step
After goose-step:
And the night-hours strike
And the night-hours pass
And the night-waters flow
Clicks the water-mill
The donkey turns not but sleeps
The horse awakes and
Out of his stall
His head looks out and views
Skeletons
Skeletons that march
Over the plain
Step after step
Like soldiers goose-step
After goose-step
