Respect

Respect for water hydrants grows
when sudden floods of water
are needed, and it also shows
three outlets for one quarter.

Because in older towns we face
quite narrow streets and houses.
So when a fire starts someplace
it kills what it arouses.

The firemen will come and dock
their hosepipes fast and steady,
so that the complete living-block
can be watered when ready.

Respect for firemen then grows
because they know what’s what
and how they have to fix a hose
to the required spot.

Aus meinem Buch:

Picture always open my mind for an idea. So that is why I like writing a poem about this idea. I especially appreciate paintings by artists, which I was allowed to use. What characterizes my books is that you can start reading wherever with whichever picture catches your eyes. So the perfect present for people who like starting at the end or just surf through the pages.
