Poetry--By Gert W. Knop--Germany

From a beech tree
a rustling of the leaves
storm approaches fast

The song of a lark 
very slowly fading 
after a summer rain

Quiet afternoon
teardrops fall silently
from memories

Cold drizzle
falling from low clouds
in a restless night

Lively vole
yesterday at the roadside
escape under leaves

Gert W. Knop was born in 1943, studied arts and tropical agriculture and is now living in Zittau, Germany. He writes poetry and short stories in German, English and Spanish.


  1. Dear Gert, I see the scenery you describe in your Haiku series. Lovely poetry. Thanks for sharing.


  2. Gert,

    What a lovely set of poems. I like them all, especially that third one. For me, I must admit, it is hard not to shed tears on a "quiet afternoon." Well done. Continued blessings!

    Beautiful interview. Continued blessings to you both!


  3. Nice collection, thanks for sharing!

  4. I like the ne about the lark especially. Und ich bin in deiner Gegend gewesen!

  5. Very enjoyable organized writing Gert
