Ginkgo Cat by Ricoro Ginkgo Cat by Ricoro

:granny: rewampFree Birthday IconBirthday gift for my German granny! <3 
Needless to say: she's a cat lover. :maggiethrust:  crying black cat emojiblushing cat2016 NaNoEmo - #27 Cool Catlil socks the cat- hi
I added the ginkgo leaves because she hung up the following poem in the stairwell:

•••

German Icon Ginkgo Biloba - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Dieses Baums Blatt, der von Osten
Meinem Garten anvertraut,
Gibt geheimen Sinn zu kosten,
Wie's den Wissenden erbaut.

Ist es ein lebendig Wesen,
Das sich in sich selbst getrennt?
Sind es zwei, die sich erlesen,
Daß man sie als eines kennt?

Solche Fragen zu erwidern
Fand ich wohl den rechten Sinn:
Fühlst Du nicht an meinen Liedern,
Daß ich eins und doppelt bin?



UK English Ginkgo Biloba - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The leaf of this Eastern tree
Which has been entrusted to my garden
Offers a feast of secret significance,
For the edification of the initiate.

Is it one living thing
That has become divided within itself?
Are these two who have chosen each other,
So that we know them as one?

I think I have found the right answer
To these questions;
Do my songs not make you feel
That I am both one and twain?
