German poetry 

Heinz Erhardt was a German comedian, musician, entertainer, actor, and poet. So much talent in one brain💛 Heinz Erhardt uses a lot of puns and wordplay. Wer ahnte schon, dass zum Weihnachtsfest Cornelia mich sitzen lässt? Das war noch nichts: Zu Ostern jetzt hat sie mich abermals versetzt! Nun freu ich mich auf Pfingsten- nicht im Geringsten! And in English? Translating double-meaning and humor, puns and wordplay in a second language can be tricky... Who would have guessed that Cornelia, would leave me waiting at Christmas. That was nothing: this Easter she stood me up again Now I'm not looking forward to Whitsun at all
