ARRIVAL: Claus und Emma (Black-headed Gulls) at Berliner Tor



Christian Morgenstern, 1871-1914


Die Möwen sehen alle aus,
als ob sie Emma hießen.
Sie tragen einen weißen Flaus
und sind mit Schrot zu schießen.
  Ich schieße keine Möwe tot,
ich laß sie lieber leben -
und füttre sie mit Roggenbrot
und rötlichen Zibeben.


O Mensch, du wirst nie nebenbei
der Möwe Flug erreichen.
Wofern du Emma heißest, sei
zufrieden, ihr zu gleichen.



Moewe Claus from Theodor Storm (1888): Der Schimmelreiter
