A Poem with Fusion of Words


Te amo


La flor


El rio




Te amo my darling sweety,

You make my heart flutter like a Nabi.

Seeking for honey in the garden of La flor,

I am still waiting for love galore,

To crown me with happiness,

Like the Arc-en-cial’s  brightness.

Yes my beloved, let it flow

Like the Ganges el rio.

Like an u-san it will shelter me,

Like spring’s beauty,

In life, making me feel a permanent so-pung.

My darling, am sure your love newly sprung

Will lead us in a paradise so heavenly

You will rejoice whole heartedly,

For I shall bestow my love on you lavishly,

Yes, abundantly.

    Using Spanish and Korean words for
    I love you
    The Flower
    The Stream
    Picnic ,
    the poet has experimented with writing English Poetry with Fusion Words from other languages .
    The mood of the poem and the reference to the arc en ceil put one in mind of the lovely song in in Spanish titled “ Ceilito Lindo” .
