Die Schnupftabaksdose  (1912)  by Joachim Ringelnatz, translated from German by Wikisource
The Postage Stamp

Der Briefmark / The Postage StampEdit

A male postage stamp underwent
something wonderful before he was sent.
By a princess he was licked;
A love within him was pricked.

He wanted to kiss her again,
but then his trip began.
So he loved her in vain;
That's life's tragic pain.
