a poem by Borries von Munchhausen Translated by Margarete A. Munsterberg.
Radiant eyes and cheeks glowing bright, In the sofa corners, one left and one right. And tightly clenched each little hand. "So the king's son left the forest-land With the princess, glad his way to wend, And now the story is at an end!" Two mournful sighs. Each mouth small and red Is closed a while in silence dead; Two sentimental voices then: "Again, Papa, please, please, again!"
