Example (written by Jan Haag)


Bliss in my heart
by the river
the brown beaver
eyed the green lawn

Bliss was a dart
I still quiver
the leaves shiver
the bird greets dawn

Bliss was a fawn
caught by the wind
as fish are finned
in the water

Bliss is now gone
humans have sinned
their hearts are pinned
to great slaughter
