Morgenstern, Christian: Das ästhetische Wiesel

Portre of Morgenstern, Christian

Das ästhetische Wiesel (German)

Ein Wiesel

saß auf einem Kiesel

inmitten Bachgeriesel.


Wißt ihr



Das Mondkalb

verriet es mir

im Stillen:


Das raffinier-

te Tier

tat's um des Reimes willen.

The Aesthetic Weasel (English)

A weasel

perched on an easel

within a patch of teasel.


But why

and how?


The Moon Cow

whispered her reply

one time:


The sopheest-

icated beest

did it just for the rhyme.
