Most of the poems are written in German, my mother-tongue, between 1975 and 1987. If you want to express yourself, you use the first language you've learned. I include a few English poems which are far from having the same quality as the German ones. It's a pity that I'm not bilingual. I would be able to wrap up into words what my mind and soul wish to communicate in either English or German. But then, there is the wisdom of Buffy Sainte-Marie, which also applies for languages:
Here the melting pot stands open - if you're willing to get bleached first.
