Flowers of Spring

Frühlingsblumen / Flowers of Spring / Flores de primavera   

Tage sind länger
Und Frühlingsblumen blühen
In den Vorgärten

An einer Linde am Fluss
Klopft nur ein Specht seinen Takt



Days are longer
And spring flowers are blooming
In the front gardens

A linden tree by the river
Only a woodpecker beats his beat



Días son más largos
Flores de primavera florescen
En los jardines 

Un árbol de tilo al río
Sólo un pájaro carpintero golpea a su ritmo

    Hi Bert. This is our heart's desire as we are thawing out from out long winter in the midwest Longing to see the delicate lil yellow flowers of the Linden trees at the arboretum and the occasional sound of a woodpecker. Enjoyed. Gwendolen

    I love this - especially written in three languages! I only have to see anything written in German and I'm back there in our favourite holiday destination - such a beautiful country and such a beautiful language. Jack : )

    The quiet of spring day is interrupted by a woodpecker. :) Nice! Have a nice weekend yourself! Caroline.

    Hi Gert :) this sure is very uplifting- I love how that woodpecker makes this tanka so alive as well-- and I sure do hope that your arm won't bother you as much, sure do wish that whisky (aack I hope I spelled it right?) could have helped you more.. ingat lagi & Alles Gute --always a pleasure to read your writes & comments thank you :)

    Finally the days ARE getting longer. Has spring finally arrived in Germany, Gert? I love the image of the woodpecker tapping on the tree. Thanks to you, I am noticing more similarities between Spanish and the little bit of French I studied. For example, jardine is French for garden and les fleurs (I think I spelled it correctly) is French for flowers. Beautiful images in your tanka, my friend. Love, Carolyn

    Sorry about your hand and arm, Gert. Keep thinking of spring flowers and in three languages. Makes the scene thrice as nice. Love, Dave
