Dragonflies' Dance

Libellentanz / Dragonflies' Dance / Baile de libélulas  Im Tanz überm See

Im Tanz überm See
Wie kleine Fabelwesen
Libellen im Licht


Dance over the lake
Like small legendary creatures
Dragonflies in the sun


Baile sobre el lago
Mítica criaturas pequeñas
Libélulas en la luz

    Gert,, Stopping by to greet you and every other soup poet, with a special thank you comment, during this wonderful Thanksgiving season. Hope you do not mind the time I am taking to express my sincere appreciation for any support you have offered during the years, or time you have been here on the soup.

    Of course, I feel that this is about one's imaginary flight over the lake like the dragonflies..Sara

    Dragonflies truly are unique in appearance, Gert, and I like the way you describe them as "legendary creatures" dancing above a lake. They're one of the few insects that don't frighten me. Beautiful work, my friend. Let me know how things go on Aug. 15. I just got a part in a play and I'm thrilled. Love, Carolyn
