which path...
the air full of birdcalls
at the crack of dawn

Welcher Pfad...
in aller Herrgottsfrühe
die Vogelrufe

am Webstuhl -
Seidenfäden werden

at the loom —
silk threads become

Kalter Morgen -
ein Funkenmariechen
wartet auf den Bus

cold morning —
a carnival girl
waits for the bus


carnival in Germany (the highlight is Rose Monday, this year on February 4th) — laughter, music and a drink or two or...the nights are long...
