    Y no se olvide de los tildes ;-) Son importantísimos

    I will translate it as I meant it to be:

    Oda al Venus Atrapamoscas


    ¡Mosca, escondete!
    Fly, hide yourself!
    Ronda el Atrapamoscas,
    The flytrap roams,
    Dientes grandes,
    Large teeth,
    Boca enorme,
    Huge mouth,
    Trampa dañina.
    Fatal trap.

    Solo quiere tu sangre,
    It only wants your bood,
    De ella obtiene su fuerza,
    [your blood] gives it strength
    No se la das. ,
    Don't give it [your blood] to him.

    Es una lastima:
    It's a pity:
    Tú eres tu propia enemiga.
    You're your own emeny,
    La atrapamoscas no puede atrapar,
    The flytrap can't trap,
    Si no vas a tomar su néctar;
    if you don't drink its nectar,
    Pero no la puedes resistir.
    But you're not able to resist,

    ______________________________

    Atrapamoscas, te amo a ti;
    Flytrap, I love you
    Contigo, no habra moscas en mi casa.
    With you, there won't be flies in my house.


    GOOD JOB PRESTO! Pretty close to what I had in mind!

    BTW: This was a class assignment. Now with Cole's corrections (except maybe the last one?)

    I work in an environment heavily saturated with Spanish, and though I am picking it up rapidly, it's only what I hear. If you were telling me that the machine is broken, and is making bad parts, I'd understand you.

    SDCPS, the poem is VERY nice, and flows prettily in Spanish.


    ~Edit~

    May I use this portion in my signature?

    Atrapamoscas, te amo a ti;
    Flytrap, I love you
    Contigo, no habra moscas en mi casa.
    With you, there won't be flies in my house.
    I think it flows nicely...better than in English anyway IMHO. Sure, go ahead.

    not bad for how rusty I am! I studied Spanish for 10 years...actually minored in it in college... but it's been a few years!

    It really does flow nicely...very nice job!

    Wow. 10 years! To tell the truth, I'm not even sure if it's exactly what I originally wanted, but I'm happy.

    Thanks. I did have help, however. I wrote it, then a Mexican, Cain (he's on the forums), helped me improve it a bit.

    Well done! I didn't know there were so many Spanish-speakers here!
    No sabía que hay tantos hispanohablantes aquí en los foros... y SDCPs, hablas español muy bien! ;-)
    Duele no tenerte cerca, duele no escuchar tu voz. Duele respirar tu ausencia, pero, duele más decirte adiós.
