Ode to Lübeck

If I lived in Lübeck

I’d buy shares in umbrellas.

I’d take tea

(Tuesdays, you and me?)

At the café which adds marzipan 

(Yes, marzipan!)

To its coffee and its tea.

And I’d buy a pink bicycle

(An emblem of cheer!)

And through Lübeck’s rain

I would joyfully ride

My dazzling pink bicycle,

With you by my side!
