LAUGHTER-GOLD
















(for Margit and the owls)



The laughter of Uli Keuler

scatters the mangy pigeons,

gives the swifts a current to fly on,

bawls out in The Boulanger,

howls in Hades.

The laughter of Uli Keuler.


The laughter of Uli Keuler

screeches along Lange Gasse,

creeps into Heckenhauer’s,

floats on The Neckar,

catches a train.

The laughter of Uli Keuler.


The laughter of Uli Keuler

climbs over the rooftops,

dreams over Swabia,

booms along Wilhelmstrasse,

scales castle walls.

The laughter of Uli Keuler.


The laughter of Uli Keuler

tickles fraus’ fancies,

ripples new leaves,

bursts open fresh fuchsias,

makes Neptune chuckle.

The laughter of Uli Keuler.


The laughter of Uli Keuler

glows red in the moonlight,

carries off Hoelderlin,

drowns the old sorrows,

lights up the odd glass.

The laughter of Uli Keuler.


The laughter of Uli Keuler

drifts a long stream


and the Tuebingen summer

is golden.
