White Water Lilies

Weiße Seerosen / White Water Lilies / Lotos blancos  

Weiße Seerosen
Sie tanzen einen Reigen
Auf dunklem Wasser


White water lilies
They perform a round dance
Over dark water 


Los lotos blancos
Ellos bailan una rueda
Sobre el agua oscura

    Happy almost end of spring, Gert. Just like Monet--you captured the entire essence--the mood--and the dance! Gwendolen

    What a beautiful image of the lilies on a dark pond, Gert! You're such a great writer and teacher as well. Got the German and Spanish words for water correct. (I read the English last.) Also got the Spanish word for white. I'm praying you receive some good news regarding your health. Love, Carolyn
