Sanctuary Poems

Sanctuary Poems

Whilst transferring an old static website, this collection of poetry exercises called Sanctuary Poems dated March 2000 was found in a sub folder.

These poetry exercises use imagery of environments (Project Sanctuary habitats) to create a metasong flow. But apart from that, they're cool and even the html is a poetic blast from the past.

Enjoy The Sanctuary Poems.

Translating A Poem: Zaubervogel & Magic Bird

Translating A Poem: Zaubervogel & Magic Bird

Whilst working on a catalogue of paintings, in which I have added as a detail if there is a poem or a story to go with the painting, I came across the German poem Zaubervogel.

I was going to add it to the catalogue as was, but then decided to translate the German poem into English. As I'm the author, and therefore know "what I was trying to say" (!) this was easy and interesting too.

Here is the original German poem Der Zaubervogel and my translation, the Magic Bird. Oh, and the painting. Of course ... :-)
