Hi

I am sure someone can help me! A 15 year old girl in Germany has this strange poem to translate as part of her homework. Does anyone know where I can find a total translation of it - without me exerting my brain!!

It is called a Rebus poem. It is words and pictures......

HELP!

Not in German but you still have to work it out!

Simultaneously posted with HM!

Sorry - I assumed it was German to English translation you wanted. If it's English to German, it's probably best to leave it to the native-speaking schoolgirl.

Hiya Marylou - Creative blinds must wonder what is going on with 2 of us after the same thing at the same time.

No, she needs to turn all the pictures into ENGLISH words. I have seen the blind too. But it was all too much for me!! I hoped someone would save me the task.

OK, this looked easy to start with but I can't work out what half the pictures are. I think I prefer the prospect of translating it into German!!! :lol:
