Hast du ein Tongedicht vollbracht
German source: Alfred Kerr

Hast du ein Tongedicht vollbracht,
Nimm vor den Füchsen dich in Acht,
Denn solche Brüder Reinecke,
Die fressen dir das Deinige!

Once you have finished a tone poem

Once you have finished a tone poem,
Beware of the Foxes,
For these Reynard Brothers
Wolf what belongs to you!
