Noch spielen die Jagdhunde im Hof, aber...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Noch spielen die Jagdhunde im Hof, aber das Wild entgeht ihnen nicht, 
so sehr es jetzt schon durch die Wälder jagt.
Lächerlich hast du dich aufgeschirrt für diese Welt. 
Je mehr Pferde du anspannst, desto rascher gehts - 
nämlich nicht das Ausreißen des Blocks aus dem Fundament, 
was unmöglich ist, aber das Zerreißen der Riemen 
und damit die leere fröhliche Fahrt.
