Blog #115 (poesie) THE ETERNAL LOCOMOTIVE (Abe)


Klitter, Klatter, Rap, Rap!
Did you just hear? Did just you see?
A new baby was just born
He has small toes, he has small hands
And a round red face that wants to suck
Let’s hear him cry, do see him stir
Do wrap him fast to keep him warm.

Klitter, Klatter, Rap, Rap!
Were you just there? Did you just see?
His eyes are blue and looking out
What does he see? What does he hear?
So small, so weak, so warm indeed
But he does seem to look about.

Klitter, Klatter, Rap, Rap!
He squirmed and seemed to smile at you
Will he be grow big? Will he be wise?
We will just have to ride the train
Its forward push, its constant speed
We’ll pay the fare, and we shall see.
