A walk in the forest, Urban, Undine, apple, turquoise, throb

Undine has got a throbbing headache
Urban suggested they walk
She first hesitates, it’s rather late
Through the woods by the river they talk

Urban protects Undine from strong gusts
With his coat on her shoulders
It’s rather late, she first hesitates
Such an epic frame those two amblers

They went straight to the old apple tree
The wind hammering the tree
She first hesitates, it’s rather late
With turquoise mugs they can have their tea

They list the places they would visit
Trying to avoid the dump
It’s rather late, she first hesitates
They have got the sense to come up trumps*
