"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February
Don't forget to check the calendar(s) for session times. Sessions are held on different platforms, so be sure to find out where the session will take place:-
Do you live in a village, in a town or in a city?
How do you like that place?
Can you tell us something about it?
I live in a rural city called Roeselare which is situated in the north of Belgium. It is a pleasant town to live in. A special place of interest is the well-known brewery where "Rodenbach" beer is brewed. "Rodenbach" is a dark brown beer with a spicy flavour. The old brewery can be visited by the public. Except for the brewery you can visit a Renaissance castle in Roeselare that played a major role during the two World War 1940-1945. Roeselare is also famous because of the very famous writer and poet Guido Gezelle that once lived there. Guido Gezelle was a romanticus.
Although there is generally not too much amusement in Roeselare, the town is a nice place to visit. It's especially a calm place to be, where you can find peace and quiet. However, two or three times the town organises an an event for all the residents of the city. On this event there are many activities you can enjoy, like many actions, appearances, music, folklore etc. I love to live there and to be there with many many friends.
