    Default Can someone translate this little poem to (good) Dutch ?

    The modest Rose puts forth a thorn,
    The humble Sheep a threat'ning horn;
    While the Lily white shall in love delight,
    Nor a thorn, nor a threat, stain her beauty bright.



    Thank you in advance !

    Lilly

    de bescheiden roos toont een doorn
    het nederige schaap een dreigende hoorn
    terwijl anderzijds de witte Lelie smoorverliefd
    niet in het bezit van een doorn noch een hoorn
    haar schiterende schoonheid zal bevlekken

    (I am Dutch, born in Amsterdam. Hi lilly
