Like a snail

To sparingly accommodate
a staircase that you need
you often find a spiral great
unless you want to speed.

For if you hurry in a round
that up and up does go
thus therefore almost skywards bound
you’ll suffer vertigo.

Snails with their spiral house walk slowly
and show us how to live
the quiet life and lowly.
There’s not much else they give.

Aus meinem Buch:

Especially in times of the Corona crisis our view on nature suffers a slight change. We suddenly notice that to protect ourselves we have to protect nature. Even serious themes can be pressed into rhymes.
