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.

November by Walter de la Mare

    Forget about picking the perfect avocado from the pile. Just go get an apple to bring home with your randomly picked avocado. If the one you picked seems still a bit hard, put it in a paper bag with the apple over night, and you'll get to enjoy a perfectly ripe avocado in the morning.

    I might try this though unfortunately avocados are a bit expensive at the moment here in France @takafromtokyo. Probably apples too!

    Have you heard about the news: Donald Trump dumping all the fish food at once at Akasaka Palace?

    Well, it turns out that the truth was Abe threw all his fish food first, and Trump was just following his host.

    I’ve just learned, of remembered this phrasal verb: bring someone down. I just couldn’t come up with it this morning; now I’m happy!

    “Rain brings me down.”

    Rain gets me down @takafromtokyo. Someone might bring me down by criticising me. I can also go down with a cold.

    Do we really have to learn forever, @takafromtokyo ?
  • takafromtokyotakafromtokyo Posts: 2,293 ✭✭✭✭
    Learning is for fun. It’s one way to entertain yourself. You don’t have to but you can always be amazed by learning something new!

    I have the impression that I'm learning the same and the same, again and again. :D
