Irene Beddies

Handle with Care

 



Handle with Care
 
 
Love is a present
you get unexpected
and without reason.
It is to be handled with utmost care
like a fragile flower of glass or
a silvery veil of cobwebs.
 
 
Don’t let it drop,
don’t pull at the edges,
don’t poke into it
out of curiosity.
 
 
Never love will reveal the secret 
why it came,
why it stays on,
will never permit the question
about its creation and decline.
Love will not recover 
when curious eyes or senseless hands
have hurt it.
 
 
You are allowed only
to take or to resent
this precious gift.
But don’t dare
to play for a while
and put it away
when you get a new toy.
Love will take revenge.
You’ll be stigmatized forever
as one not being able
even to love yourself.

In Krollebolles Reich: Märchen von Irene Beddies



Irene Beddies hat in diesem Band ihre Märchen für Jugendliche und Erwachsene zusammengestellt.
Vom Drachen Alka lesen wir, von Feen, Prinzen und Prinzessinnen, von kleinen Wesen, aber auch von Dummlingen und ganz gewöhnlichen Menschen, denen ein wunderlicher Umstand zustößt.
In fernen Ländern begegnen dem Leser Paschas und Maharadschas. Ein Rabe wird sogar zum Rockstar.
Auch der Weihnachtsmann darf in dieser Gesellschaft nicht fehlen.

Mit einer Portion Ironie, aber auch mit Mitgefühl für die Unglücklichen, Verzauberten wird erzählt.
