A Flower

Eine Blume / A Flower / Una flor

Eine Blume blüht mir jetzt 
zu dieser Zeit.
Ach hätte sie doch auch
für mich geblüht
in der Vergangenheit!



A flower blooms only for me
this very time
Oh if it would have also bloomed
for me in earlier times!


Una flor florece sólo para mí
en este tiempo
¡Oh, si también habría florecido
para mí en tiempos pasados!

    I definitely enjoyed all three versions of this concise work...especially since I lived 2 years in Germany in the 60's and have lived both in Mexico and on the south Texas border with Mexico for many years. Excellent job.

    Dear Gert- I was waiting for you to post a new work. It is interesting how, through this brief poem, you feel as though the flower's beauty is made especially for YOU! I believe that's how God planned it! Have a great day. Gwendolen
