Book of poems

Wanted to show you this little book of poems about plants of the writer Karl Heinrich Waggerl (published in 1950) that I bought in my childhood on a flea market. Next to every poem is a beautiful illustration of a painter called Karl Weiser.

I just found a beautiful copy of that recently! It is so pretty and I was going to make some embroideries based on the illustrations. I can't read any of the poems though ~ are they nice?

@Brooke: Oh, really, you have the same? What a coincidence! The poems are very nice! I even learned some by heart when I was a child just for fun :)

@Bambi: ja, die Natur hat mich schon immer interessiert, das hab ich wohl von meinen Eltern...
