weh unser guter kaspar ist tot
wer verbirgt nun die brennende fahne im zopf und wer dreht die kaffeemühle
wer lockt nun das idyllische reh
auf dem meer verwirrte er die schiffe mit dem wörtchen parapluie und die winde nannte er bienenvater
weh weh weh unser guter kaspar ist tot heiliger bimbam kaspar ist tot
die heufische klappern in den glocken wenn man seinen vornamen ausspricht darum seufze ich weiter kaspar kaspar kaspar
warum bist du ein stern geworden oder eine kette aus wasser an einem heissen wirbelwind oder ein euter aus schwarzem licht oder ein durchsichtiger ziegel an der stöhnenden trommel des felsigen wesens
jetzt vertrocknen unsere scheitel und sohlen und die feen liegen halbverkohlt auf den scheiterhaufen

- Hans Arp

I am eternally greatful for this wonderful poem by Arp! I didn't know it when I painted that (except that Kaspar is indeed a mythological figure in Germany, and also a early childhood copmpanion of mine) - I have to earmark this for future use! There are some subconscious references to Till Eulenspiegel beginning to surface as well.....
Cheers

He called that and the rest of it "der vogel selbdritt", a different and much expanded version was written as "kaspar ist tot" 33 years later in 1953. I can't find it right away on the internet, though there seem to be several versions: the one I'm thinking of goes on for 19 stanzas.
I'm looking forward to some merry pranks.
