A doggerel series about the countries of the world.
I’ve spent some time in Germany—
I’ve driven on the Autobahn.
I saw as much as I could see
By starting every day at dawn.
I visited historic sites.
I took a cruise—the river Rhine.
I drove up into alpine heights
And toured that Castle Frankenstein.
My dad was there. That World War.
I saw some places he had been.
Like Dachau—rotten to the core.
I saw where young Anne Frank had been.
Cathedrals and those little towns
That look like famous works of art.
The rivers, restaurants—ups and downs.
Such evidence of mind and heart!
