An Old School


I am from an old school

idioms, phrases and expressions

were taught with intensity

years have passed

still I remember them.

 

The voices of my teachers reverberate

they made us expand the idioms

use our imagination

strike a story and go ahead

they would say.

 

The way we learnt the language

with exercises on conjugation

precis, paraphrase, and analysis

of sentences all in detail

has made me what I am.

 

I owe the language to them

to my mother who was equally  strict

a slip here or a misspelt word

would earn a punishment.

It was a hard way of learning

it has its  own reward.

The Code Of Expressions.


Expressions  are various.

Expressing  well is an art  indigenous .

Expressing ill is a skill disastrous .

Expressing sense is a practice harmonious.

Expressing rot is a vocation dangerous.

Expressing joy is a design felicitous.

Expressing sadness is an exercise torturous.

Expressions  involve a grandeur infectious.

Expressions  entertain a cordiality delicious.

Expressions go about to form a discipline luminous.

A Dance In France.


It was in France.

I saw a dance.

It depicted a romance.

It was a delightful stance.

It was a sprightly advance.

It instigated a trance.

 

The episodes were enhancing.

The movements were scintillating.

The music was capturing.

The presentation was engulfing.

On the whole it was vivaciously charming.

 

Round and round the danseuse moved in a whirl.

Round and round the music filled in a swirl.

Round and round the expressions gathered in a curl.

Round and round the scenes changed in a furl.

Round and round the drummers beat in a hurl.

 

It was a recital very engaging.

It was a concert very enlivening.

It was an experience absolutely enthralling.

It released a significant  nostalgic feeling.

On the whole it was overwhelmingly amazing.
