"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

Hello folks! I've just kicked off a session recently with other LEO members and commenced discussing few basic idioms commonly used by English Native speakers. Well, I do confess I'm not a totally fluent one when it comes to idiomatic expressions and this session could be really helpful especially to those who want to learn these words that are conventionally understood by native speakers. So, what are you waitin' for? Come on and join us!
For details on how to join us, please feel free to drop your messages via private message to me or @Lynne. See you there!
