Ferlinghetti, Lawrence: Don’t Let That Horse . . .

Portre of Ferlinghetti, Lawrence

Don’t Let That Horse . . . (English)

Don't let that horse
                          eat that violin

  cried Chagall's mother

                             But he
                 kept right on

And became famous

And kept on painting
                         The Horse With Violin In Mouth

And when he finally finished it
he jumped up upon the horse
                                 and rode away
        waving the violin

And then with a low bow gave it
to the first naked nude he ran across

And there were no strings
