for those who write in more than one language...this one's for you!

Lost in words

I took three years of Spanish
But would not have a clue
How to translate one to the other
When writing a poem or two
My admiration goes out
To the many who can... and do
Cause my words are in one language
And theirs are in a slew

I'm with you, I couldn't write in any other language except English. I congradulate those who have mastered more than one language!!! Cute write.

I too applaud those who do that thing they do.

Like you, I've taken languages, was actually an honors student, but would not even attempt to write a poem in another language. I used to dodge my Spanish teacher in college for fear if I said, "Hola!" she'd gush Spanish at me like a hose and then she'd know I didn't deserve that "A." LOL

However, you deserve applause for this poem. I enjoyed this delightful write of yours in my native tongue very much. :-) ~~Nordette

Well I know enough Spanish to get me in trouble and I am like John in that conjugating verbs always threw me for a loop. So I study the body language and try to find a happy mediumn.

My admiration to them also, Lynn. And I'm in the same club you are -I was brought up by Polish speaking relatives, I took three years of French in college, I lived in Italy for three years, and my wife speaks Spanish - and I can't manage to write in any of the four - Bummer!
