Up, out of the Spree!
(of the city) he said
We should get out of town!
(in the meadow)

Do you know how breakneck it is?
to be alone (on a dusty bridge)
when you have a violet break?

Dancing in the sunshine
(bare feet) you see!
He was right all along

(Maybe I should propose)
in a violet break!
(and I did!)
