RDP Wednesday: Brilliance

Restaurant Christmas Window 18.11.2018

Deck the shops with lots of light
It’s Christmas time and we do it right
But brilliance is not only a shine
It is also a talent of mine
Fifty years ago I moved to Switzerland
I don’t know why, it wasn’t even planned
Yes I met Mr. Swiss, and we got married
We became a pair, over the threshold I was carried
But now came the brilliant part because I became a Swiss
I then learned the language, that was almost a big miss
This country has many languages, that only the Swiss understand
So I learned Swiss German, by mutual command
It is a dialect, in this country there are many
But to understand all over the land is difficult, there are plenty
I did it after about five years, and everyone here knows it
But if I speak to someone else, then they must oppose it
With Swiss German I meet a permanent resilience
And can only talk to the Swiss who recognise my brilliance
