Die zwei Wurzeln
The two Roots

Modern Times CD


The roots of two pine trees,
One young and one old
Are in conversation, so we’re told.

What is making the tree tops
is, for those below, topic of the day.

An ancient squirrel
Sitting there
Is knitting stockings
For the pair.

The one says: clickety click.
The other: clackety clack.
Enough for now, but I’ll be back.
