A Flemish Limerick

by Anne Engelen

Ergens in Virginia is het geweten
Daar woont Dan en die kan eten
Geloof me, het is uniek
Zijn zuchtjes en kreetjes klinken als muziek
Wie hem gehoord heeft, zal het nooit vergeten

translation: (it's not a limmie in english)
Somewhere in Virginia it is known
there lives Dan, and he can eat
believe me, it's unique
his little sighs and cries sound like music
who has heard him, shall never forget

It's interesting to get to see the language in printed poetry like this. Quite neato. :)

So clever! It is a wonderful gift to be able to write in two languages so well! Du bist sehr gut!(To slay a little German! LOL!)
