I have managed to get sick so I have been sitting around the house rather bored. Despite that I still managed to go to work yesterday (which I probably shouldn't have) but I did find this rather thick book on french poetry. Since I am still attempting to learn the language I feel like this is a good way to learn some more vocabulary. I did do the same with Japanese. I would often practice by reading proverbs or haikus.
Though have I found myself rather fond of the poem "Automne" by W.S Merwin
Dans le brouillard s'en vont un paysan cagneux
Et son beouf lentement dans le brouillard d'automne
Qui cache les hameaux pauvres et vergogneux
Et s'en allant la-bas le paysan chantonne
Une chanson d'amour et d'infidélité
Qui parle d'une bague et d'un coeur que l'on brise
Oh! l'automne l'automne a fait mourir l'été
Dans le brouillard s'en vont deux silhouettes grises
I guess here I am still dreaming of cooler weather and red-orange leaves. We might be in the 80's here in Texas but it still feels like summer. If only I could wear a sweater! Anyways I hope everyone is enjoying there week. I have a test to get studying for that is on Monday.
