Under The Cherry-tree


As I saw a muscled man walking by
I remember those summerdays as a passerby
when days were still warm and got hotter
Come here lie with me under the Cherry-tree, my doctor
So cosy and pleasant a warm companion
was I right or was it just an optional illusion?
Come lie close to me, cheek-to-cheek under the Cherry-tree
Make love to me, you're always busy I'm feelin' empty
Why should we be ashamed you my legal man set me on fire
have I to beg you, it's my part to get, like a car it's tire
let's do it in peaceful harmony, together under the Cherry-tree
my love, my man, my legal bed-a-mate, don't you love me?
The coldest wind of the North has come to sweep the ground here
A barren coolness fills the atmosphere
While shivering of winterblessings the evening freeze
My thoughts were still in those summerdays
Come here close to me under the Cherry-tree, my specialist
Make some hours free, be happy, enjoy life as it is

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
