The dog teeth of summer

As the famous Greek poet


Are lined up this week

Like ducks in a row of

A daily sequence

Made the poet aware

Of the lack of fountains

With a fine spray

To cool down pedestrians

Visitors to the city

All in pursuit of a good

Time in the city centre’s

Cultural heritage.

Check out Italy’s fountains

New York’s public cool down


For a great social service.


The poet will do his usual

Walk along ‘Vorlaufstrasse’

And fetch a ‘Magnum Classic’

Ice cream on a stick

As a special treat:

When the delicious ice cream

With its chocolate coating

Melts down in the midday


Just right to eat.

Classic ice cream.
