Joys of Nordic Walking

For some time now

My life has turned around


Life’s enjoyments became

Consciously connected up

To Nordic Walking exercises.

Who would have thought

That as I’m approaching the age

Of eighty

I would shake off some chains

Of ageing

And move about the nearby trails

Crossing the twin Danubian




Detecting more and more

Connecting trails –


Häuserl am Stoan/Kahlenbergerdorf

Besides some winetasting by chance

Getting to know the outskirts

Of the City of Vienna

Meeting fellow walkers

Exchanging views on current affairs.

Living as a student of the Arts in

Vienna half a century ago

Fleeting impressions of some

Areas come back to me at some

Points and historic monuments

New impressions reinforce the

Missing stones of the city map’s

Mosaic pattern of the historical


Peace of mind comes to me

Like a dim switch turned on


Ah! Ah!
