Night in Dimdum land

When at night, and  Dimdum people sleep,

the elephant and the little dog

go out and about to have some  fun

Of course this can’t be done

when it is light!

As there is a golden rule in Dimdum land that says:

Elephants  and dogs can’t play together!

No! No way! That can’t be right!

It really is  a serious matter!

The King has said it is a crime,

The minister, the duke, the pope

all say: “Keep them creatures  on a rope!”

But nothing can be done about it

When it is night in Dimdum land

There they go play in the sand

As no one can keep friends  apart

Not when the night still has a heart…

Together we are strong!

My friend is stronger than me

but when we play together

two elephants we seem to be


He  is my friend, you see

and it doesn’t matter

that he is much stronger than me


So maybe he is very big and tall

but he never says he minds I’m not

nor  that for an elephant I am too small


My friend is wiser than me

He can write every letter

But he can’t rhyme words like me


So don’t say:  “you are just a dog” to me

No one can tell me to be otherwise

I am an elephant if I so  want to be

When I am with my friend who’s taller

I also am an elephant,  just smaller

Summer evening


The way you were then, the way you are

I see you both times now

The silent evenings near the sea

where  my skin embraces

 the moist salty air

I have been waiting for you all my life

while you were actually here

so near

A husband and a wife

 and now, as  you will always be

the one whose trusted voice,

 your timbre, sounds so good to me

I know that the way you move away my hair,

the breeze will just make it a chaotic mess again

but this gesture and your touch

is what I  have been waiting for

Not too long

Not too much

Not in vain

We still are one


like the way we were

way back then
