I. Who is coming on horseback?

Who is coming on horseback?
A medieval king.
Now he unfolds his wings
And rises up to the roofs.
To see him better
I take the lift.
Where is he? He has gone!
I raise my head,
He is laughing up on the terrace.

II. A coloured ball

A coloured ball
has the colours almost all.
A spade and a bucket.
And on the towel
a boy pulls faces.
Yes my child,
The salty sea.

III. Don't let your mind wander

Noticing in the street
A different kind of smoke,
I watched attentively:
It was thick and warm.
It was moving and there was no wind.
It lashed out as if possessed.
Until it began to separate, settling.
There appeared a kind of words
-I would say all of them could be understood-
They grew, they changed, they combined together.
And finally, triumphantly,
The main phrase burst out:
DON'T LET YOUR MIND WANDER!


(Translation: Linda Marks)
