Morning Has Broken
As sung by Cat Stevens
Lyrics by Eleanor Farjeon
Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for the springing fresh from the world
Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass
Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God's recreation of the new day
Hi! The weather here is yucky-- gray, overcast, and cold! It was down in the 30s last night- definitely NOT Florida weather (which is where I'm from).
Your daughter has great taste in pastries-- if she likes the chouettes, she should try a brioche au sucre, which is basically a giant chouette. That is definitely my favorite pastry here, although I've had to limit consumption as my hips definitely started to show the evidence of my love!
I try to keep abreast of the new books coming out even while I'm here, so I make frequent visits to the English bookshops like W.H. Smith. I've read the Millenium series (well- I'm waiting to pick up the third one from my friend) and Dan Brown's latest (total crap in my opinion), but I also caught up on some of the books I've always wanted to read but never did when in the States- like The Lord of the RIngs trilogy, Lonesome Dove (I ended up reading all four in the series-LOVE), and The Thorn Birds. I've also read much more non-fiction this year than I'm used to. That's been a fun diversion as well.
We'll be leaving Paris in January-- off to other adventures in as of yet undetermined places. Sounds exciting, but can be a bit stressful too!
Good luck with the class- it sounds interesting.
Hi Sabine! I must say that I always ignore Shelfari requests from people I don't know, but... you're bio intrigues me. Being an English teacher (albeit in stasis at the moment), I like the idea of using Shelfari as an assignment. I've been on here for several years now and really enjoy it-- it is a great way for my friends and I to keep up on what to read, what we liked, what we hated. As your course progresses, could you let me know what sort of things your prof wants from you in regards to Shelfari use? Would you mind sharing your syllabus?
Well, I just wanted to say hi an welcome. How did you choose me, btw?
