COLOURS IN SPRING



















White blossom that changes from red into pink
in springtime with sunshine when people just drink
and play in this colourful landscape of beauty
where nature is doing is heavenly duty.

Green apple-trees growing in fields near the beaches
tell us with their colours how far springtime reaches.
And in all this music of life's jolly swinging
I hear my dear Carmen so caring and singing.

Look, Blacky our grey dog is now full of white
he spent in the cushions a quite happy night
and when we got up he looked very bright.

He plays and he jumps full of joy and of life,
his teeth are as big and as sharp as a knife
but he is the best friend of me and my wife.
