Fiery Fingers

 
 

Fiery Fingers
 
 
Fall lifted his fiery finger
 to set the colours in the woods aflame.
He told the North Wind not to linger
but play with rustling leaves a game,
 
 
to push them forth through street and lane,
to leave them weary in the gutters
while heavy from a half lit sky the rain
 is beating hard the window shutters.
 
 
Under the trees into dull mud decay
the foliage, the fruits, the weeds.
The lake stirs greatly in this hazy day
to brood and boil among the reeds.
 
 
In our house a fire is ablaze,
its rosy comfort is to charm and cheer.
Let on the grates us scented apples braise,
let’s sing and at Old Winter jeer!

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.
