Walter Breker, artwork for the poem Mondschaf / Moonsheep by Christian Morgenstern, 1970/1905. Germany.
The moonsheep stands upon the clearing.
He waits and waits to get his shearing.
The moonsheep plucks himself a blade
returning to his alpine glade.
The moonsheep murmurs in his dream:
‘I am the cosmos’ gloomy scheme.’
The moonsheep, in the morn, lies dead.
His flesh is white, the sun is red.
the best sheep ever!
