A LA RECHERCHE DU TEMPS PERDU


A la recherche du temps perdu
Young men butchered on the fields of Flanders
A la recherche du temps perdu
One 4 year old girl snatched on holiday in Portugal
A la recherché de Madeleine perdue
Heard the Beetles but never saw them in Russia in the 60s
A la recherché du temps perdu
Religious straitjacket robbed me of 30 years of enjoying them
A la recherché du temps perdu

    I really like this. Love the French refrain. This is perfection, mixing the English lines amongst the French. Very delicious. Thanks so much for this one. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
