  1. To write poetry that stirs the heart (in any language) is a gift, but to achieve it through a translation is amazing. The vocabulary and structure of your poems evoke a cocktail of emotions that speaks both of joy and pain, love and heartbreak and of gain and loss. Thank you for sharing and keep writing. I particularly liked the inner reflections and analogy to the planets :-)

  4. Powerful, moving poetry that I’m sure will be enjoyed by many. My pupils are learning Spanish, so this is ideal to show them! Congratulations on being a published writer!

    Elisabeth, this is wonderful work and I am sure very useful to a lot of classrooms teaching Spanish! It is great to have an example written by a student – such a beautiful poem as well. Thanks for sharing!
