Margaret Alice Second

Freshman - 1,454 Points (24 January 1961 / South Africa)

Elated, Freed And Delighted


And then we sang ‘Le Pénitencier' in French class,
I never knew ‘The House of the Rising Sun' was
written in French, we threatened Mr Bunduki we
are going to Google it, we laboriously sang along
when Mr Bunduki stopped the recording and to a
man we stopped also, he laughed, wanted to hear
us sing alone - like the audience when Billy Joel
sang ‘The Piano Man' and they continued singing

But we do not know the melody that well and the
pronunciation is an art form we must still master
it all made for such a wonderful atmosphere, my
boss ‘au bureau' told me all is well and since I
am ‘Alice dans la Pays de Merveille' travelling
with ‘Le Petit Prince' among the planets of the
‘buveur' and ‘roi' and Marali as ‘Le Lapin' who
graciously receives all the handbooks on French

I hand out - what a marvellous class, what a
wonderful life - all my troubles with difficult
translation on Poverty in Africa just lends spice
to it all, I feel so elated, freed and delighted, I
want to sing and dance tonight; merci beaucoup
Mr Bunduki, vous êtes un excellent professeur
just as Marali said you would be!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
