    I listen to this French Miss give a musical twist to the well known poets and I love it. This Auden(Lady Weeping At The Crossroads) is one of my favourite Audens anyway and I adore how she deals with it. Sing along to the great poets! I do the dishes and sing Yeats and Emily D. Love the harmonica break in the first Yeats...go Wille go.. play that harp you long dead Irish boy brought back to life with a Gallic shrug and a certain je ne sais pais! Groovy Yeatsy! The Walter De La Mere AUTUMN is heartbreaking! Anyway your haiku sums up all the joy the disc has given me and man...even the snails(balance precariously on a trembling leaf come to hear Emily Dickenson sung in English with a slight touch of a French acceent. Ah! C'est la vie...n'est ce pas? Mais qui...mais qui!
