WW2 Poem : “Mrs. Evans fach, you want butter again” by Idris Davies

leave a comment »

 

Mrs.Evans fach, you want butter again.
How will you pay for it now, little woman
With your husband out on strike, and full
Of the fiery language? Ay, I know him,
His head is full of fire and brimstone
And a lot of palaver about communism,
And me, little Dan the Grocer
Depending so much on private enterprise.

What, depending on the miners and their
Money too? O yes, in a way, Mrs. Evans,
Come tomorrow, little woman, and I’ll tell you then
What I have decided overnight.
Go home now and tell that rash red husband of yours
That your grocer cannot afford to go on strike
Or what would happen to the butter from Carmarthen?
Good day for now, Mrs.Evans fach.

Idris Davies ( 1905 – 1953)

Learn Russian, Anyone?

You may have a thousand reasons why you should master another languages. I am by no means an unformidable thinker. I always believe curiosity will broaden our horizons and help to make us smarter. All right, I just found one cool site that pretty useful for beginner, or travellers to learn Russian. The site teach you how to read Russian letters, phonetic practises, useful phrases, literature and more.

Enjoy the ride
