Germany, A Winter's Fairy Tale: Caput III, IV.
Caput III (conclusion of)
As you sit upon your airy perch
I shall call to the honourable men,
The shooting party hunting nearby,
The Rheinischen Vogelschützen.
If one your men can bring down this bird
We shall sound a fanfare and sing,
And to that man the scepter and crown,
As we call out "Long live the King!"
Caput IV (follows . . .)
