Chapter 12. Romantic mood.
So, yesterday me and my wife went to Chinese restaurant to celebrate our date. We ate sushi and drank Chilean wine. Sounds strange for Chinese cookery, doesn't it? Nevertheless we were pleased. And as soon as romantic mood hasn't passed yet, today I'd like to share with you some of my poetry. :)
The first one is a little bit silly-romantic. I wrote it several years ago, when I just started learn English. It's called 'Sky is blue'.
Sky is blue.
I love You.
I am looking through.
Snow is white,
That's all right.
All my dreams come true.
In the brain -
I am very glad.
Sing a song.
In my poor head...
The second one is more philosophical. The title is 'Forever old'.
I want to be forever old,
Forever smart and wise like wizard.
I want to be forever cold
And still, and silent as a lizard.
I want to be forever old.
And older's better, as a wine.
And if I would as piece of gold,
I'd like to do forever shine.
Forever young, forever drunk?
What's use to be forever nothing?
What's fun to be forever blank,
Surroundings not realizing?
Eternity is just for God,
Who watch the Universe through glasses.
So let me be forever old,
With thousands means of aliases.
By the way, what do you think about poetry in terms of English learning. Does it help you? Do you even read it? I must confess I haven't found poetry as a good way of learning. It's difficult to understand it. The grammar is often abused for the sake of rhyme and metre. Besides, this is not the case when you can pass by unknown words while following the punchline. But I appreciate that I might have missed something because I haven't read contemporary poetry but only ancient one, Shakespeare for instance.
Looking forward to feedback from you.
