Writer's Workshop - Poem Of Love

Yes, Thursday, and it's time for Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop. Check out the prompts and join in!

Today, I chose No. 5 - Write a poem to your love for Valentine's Day!
I wrote it in German, hope that counts as well...

>>Es war, als ich Dich zum ersten Mal sah
Als es um mich geschah
Du hast mein Herz genommen
Da hat mein Leben einen Sinn bekommen
Du stärkst meinen Rücken, hältst meine Hand
Schaust auch über den Tellerrand
Dass Du mir jeden Tag soviel gibst
Zeigt mir, wie sehr Du mich liebst
Du bist mein geliebter Ehemann
Den Besten, den ich mir wünschen kann
Ich liebe Dich von ganzem Herzen
Da neige ich nicht zu Scherzen
Danke, dass es Dich für mich gibt
Es ist schön zu wissen, dass man liebt<< © by


  1. Of course it counts, but it would be nice to have an English translation here as well for those of us who forgot most of the German we learned like me.

    Visiting from Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop.

  2. I'm gonna have to have BFF translate for me. Being half German comes in handy sometimes!

  3. Visiting from Mama Kats...

    Ummmm...guten tag! That is pretty much the extent of my German ... but I'm sure the poem was lovely!

  4. I can't read German, but I am sure your valentine poem is just lovely : ). Very nice! I love your blog button. It is so cute!

  5. Don't know an ounce of German, but it sounded good...the words rhyme, I bet it's beautiful!

  6. Thank you all for your lovely comments :-)
    If I would translate this into English the words wouldn't rhyme anymore and I think the expression wouldn't be the same - sorry! Hope you'll understand...

  7. Ooooh, have you been to Germama's site?


    I love her - there's not that much German on it but she's great - check it out!

  8. That's beautiful! I'm also glad to get the brush up on my rarely used German. I took an entire class on German poetry and wish I could use it more often!


I would love to hear from you!
Don't be shy, tell me what's on your mind :-)
