Poems by Gerlinde Staffler
A symphony of rolling enticing notes,
Entrancing ears enchanting hearts
From a being in soft feathered clothes
Leaving behind a scent of melodic darts.
Nothing can replace natural wonders
Elated we are and also thrown back
By animated stars and soundful thunders
Is our place assigned by a chosen track?
Permit me to get lifted by vibrant joy
When childlike wishes hover on birds’ wings
While silent tears upon my cheeks allow
That pain vanish in air before sun gleams
Fragments of nocturnal whistles and trills
Follow in the obscure of a deeper hue
Where my spirit flees from fiery mills
To view gentle gladness in hours of dark blue

Courage to Dare
A star on the stairs of a bold horizon
Showed up to attend a joyful stirring dance
In careful licence to love in life’s ballroom
With intriguing power of pure innocence.
When two worlds allow to give voice
To shy trust, to this tender bloom of worship
Then a kiss seals the hearts as minded choice
And adoring patience plants in truth its seed.
Tameless breaths circle in romantic filled air
Glistening eyes, caught from the evening sky
Scents of roses wipe away the last grain of fear
Courage to dare is sublime freedom to fly.
