On this breezy October morn, I walk
in the swift shadows of cloud-cursing rooks,
watching the world wake on the horizon.
All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.
We meet them at the doorway, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.
How can music improve our English skills?
i mean come on, i cannot even know poetry.
however, some of songs have rhymes that easy listening, like Frankie Valli's "Can't Take My Eyes Off You"
or easy to understand like Eminem's "Loose Yourself" even though Eminem is a rapper (rythm and poems, maybe).
btw, let us check Eminem's:
"His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti"
Mom's spaghetti? really? is that a metaphore or just to make a rhyme?
or maybe we can take an example from AC/DC's "Thunderstruck", personally, it's kind of easy listening but hard to understanding.
So personally, music does not help me understanding english but lyric does.
What about you guys?
