Thread Name: Help: singing in German
Subject: RE: Help: singing in German
Whether languages are beautiful or poetic is a matter of taste. Spanish, at least as it is pronounced in Mexico, sounds a whole lot harsher, to me, than German. All the 'p's are pronounced 'b' as in "El Baso." Spanish sentiments tend to be pretty harsh, too.

My favorite poem is in German, and melodic:

Herr, es ist Zeit. Der Sommer war sehr gross.
Leg' deinen Shatten auf den Sonnenuhren,
und auf den Fluren lass' die Winde los ...
