Können Blumen schlafen?
Ist der Mond ein Mann?
Bindet man im Hafen,
auch das Wasser an?
Kann man Liebe malen?
Gibt es bunten Schnee?
Wie erklÀrt man Zahlen?
Tuen Schmerzen weh?
Weist du kein Gedicht mehr?
Werde ich bald groß?
Brauch ich dich dann nicht mehr?
Warum weinst du bloß?

Can flowers sleep?
Is the moon a man?
Do you also tie
the water in the harbour?
Can you paint love?
Is there coloured snow?
How do you explain numbers?
Does pain hurt?
Don’t you know another poem?
Am I gonna be grown up soon?
Will I no longer need you then?
Why, are you crying?
