Alternate Author Name(s): Kostrowitzky, Wilhelm Apollina
Subject(s): Travel; Journeys; Trips

I think of Gaspard that certainly was not
His real name he is traveling he has left the town
Of Blue Lanchi where all the children called him Papa
At the foot of the calm gulf facing the seven islands
Gaspard walks on and longs for the rice and the tea
The milky way
At night since naturally he is walking
Only at night often catches his eye
But Gaspard
Knows full well that one must not follow it
