The excentric lord (Excerpt) by Nils Ferlin (1898 – 1961).


It was the excentric lord,
who lived at the Midnight Hill,
– if you happen to know that mansion,
from north or south if you will.

In Africa – India – China
he stayed quite many years,
and when he came home to his own,
the rimfire colored his hairs.

A searcher he was, that’d looked
all over the spots of the Earth,
to find – what since long was known,
that all is just a nought.
