Goethe - Anecdote (Translated)
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe was in illustrious company.
A young man approached and challenged him:
'Sir, you are the Fatherland's greatest poet but I am convinced that you will not be able to construct a rhyming poem out of the following two words: Doorbell and Maidenbosom.'
Goethe retreated to a desk for a few minutes and then returned with a new poem.
The doorbell mounted to the wall
the bosom, neither big nor small
the hand soon feels at a light touch
from deep inside, both things as such,
an inner stirring of the bell
