Lines To A Sunburned Girl In A White Dress

Poem By jim hogg

Diogenes sass in der Tonne,
die Fuesse draussen in der Sonne.
Die Fuesse fangen an zu schwitzen
wenn viele Zellen sich erhitzen.

Doch drinnen in der dunklen Tonne
schien weder tags noch nachts die Sonne.

Durch kleine Fugen und auch Ritzen
sah man die Kakerlaken flitzen.
Sie lebten alle in der Tonne,
mit Weisheit wohl, doch ohne Sonne.

A Little Bit Of Darkness

It had gone dark in my world.
An invisible sadness, one of substance
drifted in, from a horizon so far
and so unknown to me,
