A poem written in French by a student taking French tuition with Alliance Française de Bristol

Although Spring has officially arrived, it was announced on the French radio on March 20th, sleet and snow are forecast for next week so a poem about Winter and snow is still appropriate!
Renee who started her French class with us last September and who was then almost a beginner wrote the following poem:

Il neige
Tout le monde est blanc
Tout le monde est silencieux
Les petits oiseaux dans les arbres, l'arrêt de leur chant
La souris qui dort dans son nid
Mon chat regarde par la fenêtre
Mon chien dort près du feu
Il neige
Tout le monde est blanc
Tout le monde est silencieux

What  about writing your own poem about Spring or Easter? We look forward to seeing it on the blog!
