9 April 2021 picture + form: I 'der' to Learn German

I lege meine Schlüssel

in die Schüssel,

nicht mein Eis oder

mein Ei.


Ich esse meine Kirschen

in der Küche,

nicht in der Kirche

mit meinem Koch.


Deutsch learnen macht

sehr viel spass

und is super einfach!

Nicht für mich!

Translation by Me:

I put my keys

in the bowl,

not my ice cream or

my egg.


I eat my cherries

in the kitchen,

not in the church

with my cook.


Learning German

is very much fun

and super easy!

Not for me!

poetic form: Poem in Two Languages

  • poem written in one language
  • translated in another 

 The inspiration for my attempt at a Poem in Two Languages is Tabatha at the Opposite of Indifference. She also happens to be this week's host for Poetry Friday! Check out the NPM goodness!
