There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

    I hope you'll come again.

    what about you? where are you from? tell me about your favorite places in your country

    @wilidga thanks for the explanation. How can you as a citizen learn the languages or is this language only reserved for the tribe itself. I know they have their own traditions, music, medicins and I think a lot more things.

    Hi! I'm from Poland, exactly I live in Warsaw, but not in a town centre. I live in a silent, green district of my city.
  • PaulettePaulette Posts: 7,325 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Hello @Ola nice to meet you on the forum. I am never been in Warsaw but I was once in Krakow to visit the concentration camp Auschwitz because a lot of Belgian friends and family of my parents were deported to there.
    I also know the Polish composer and pianist Frédéric Chopin.

    ı m from turkey.not the animal one
  • PaulettePaulette Posts: 7,325 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @enes welcome to the forum, I never visited the country Turkey but I visited once an animal turkey farm and there was a lot of noise there. I think Turkey as country is more quiet. I like its beatiful beaches with the blue sea. At the moment I am following the decisions if Turkey may or may not join the European community.
  • enesenes Posts: 36 ✭✭
    @Paulette ı really don t care what will happen in future about political vision
  • enesenes Posts: 36 ✭✭
    @Paulette but turkey is lovely places for everyone who wants to see all about nature and history
  • PaulettePaulette Posts: 7,325 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @enes I think it is a problem of both as well from Turkey as from a lot of others communities, there is always something that constitutes an obstacle.
  • enesenes Posts: 36 ✭✭
    @Paulette its all about politics ı think we have capable of of joining EU but political leaders of turkey make situation into hard
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 28,110 mod
    It's complicated @enes. Many areas of Turkey are so very poor too, so the EU is wary of taking on such a large country that's also poor. But politics aside, one day I'm sure that Turkey will join the EU.
  • Hi i'm from Turkey and i live in Ankara which is capital of Turkey
  • PaulettePaulette Posts: 7,325 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Hello @mehmetbozkurt97 welcome to the forum, you are from Turkey, the country of the pianist and composer Frédéric Chopin. He was a great man and his music is still alive.
  • Thank you @Paulette but he is from poland not Turkey :)
  • PaulettePaulette Posts: 7,325 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @mehmetbozkurt97 thank you for the correction, I was really distracted to write that Chopin was from Turkey. I was togethet with one of my granddaughters searching for famous pianists and composers ( a task foor her school) and on my list was also Fazil Say of Turkey. I wrote the wrong name.

    @Paulette Auschwitz was a horrible place. I still haven't been there, but I feel I have to. People say that there you can feel the tragedy of this people who was there.
  • LexaLexa Posts: 4
    I like Krakow, it is one of my favourite places. I've been to Oświęcim two times. First time I was alone there, second time with my family. It is really overwhelming place.
  • OlaOla Posts: 13 ✭✭
    @Lexa I think you use the right word "overwhelming". I was in a other concentration camps and there was the same feeling.
