sounds of vienna

July 3, 2011

clip clop clip clop
horse’s hoofs start and stop
the driver’s click to make them go
carriage wheels gild just for show

dingle-dring dingle-dring
vienna’s cyclists a speedy thing
step quick aside as they zip by
a whoosh of air, blink of an eye

rumble and hum rumble and hum
the trolley car wheels announce as they come
doors open quick get in and get out
then to the next platz before turning about

drubble-dee drubble, drubble-dee drubble
those damn cobblestones are a whole lot of trouble
the heel of her shoe may catch on a crack
causing a trip, fall down with a smack

clang and dong clang and dong
stephansdom bells are starting a song
parishioners called from far and from wide
cool pews in shadows a nice place to hide

birdsong’s peal birdsong’s peal
the morning’s come it’s sunlight i feel
our vienna trip’s over to venice we go
what sound does a gondola make, do you know?
