Poem: "By the Berlin Tiergarten"

Do you remember being by the Berlin Tiergarten
And that heavy feeling we had had
Because we were both a bit sad?

And then you asked me how I was
And I said sad was how I felt
Because the last time in Berlin 
I was with someone else.

And then you said you understood,
That in Berlin you sometimes too 
Had the ghost of melancholia come over you.

Yet our hearts were meshed
And the sky was blue
And our hands were laced 
And our love was new.
