Knocking on the moonlit door.
Whoops! No question mark.
Ain't nobody here but us chickens.
As a male chicken I guess I am a bit of a ****
Or should that be rooster?
Be very careful, Did. Bad language will not be tolerated on here!
I guess rooster could be a "bad word"
there was no answer because they had gone on away..It was a holiday cottage.
I had to learn and recite that poem for my Elocution exam many many years ago.
I have never forgotten it !
(The many people who know me.... would probably fall about laughing at the Honours Cert in Elocution as they know me not for poetic language but for "poetic" language...... )
Some holiday cottage:
'And a bird flew out of a TURRET above the Traveller's head................
Elocution is particularly important in that field
Delivery is everything
It is around here.
Definitely the former.
Always been impressed by this hotel.
I love that poem:
"as his horse in the silence champed the grasses of the forests ferny floor." I posted that without reading the side of Nomad's hotel.
"Tell them I came and no-one answered, that I kept my word, he said."
I seem to have a bit of a gap in the middle. Off to Google for a reread....
Nomad, where is that hotel please?
Look for clues - Google is your friend
We "dun" that pome in Y6, and I remember thinking (because saying out loud what you were thinking never seemed to go well) well, you had a plan and you arrived either too early or too late. Better think of another plan." Even then it didn't strike me as a poetic response.
Its hard to imagine that I was recommended and went to elocution training before I started teaching.the tutor recommended that my Liverpool accent would be not understandable to children.
To think I moved to east London and I didn't understand them!
