Poem: United States is the name

We have grown to have great fame

Hawaii and Alaska are far apart

But they still have a pact in our heart

Go to holly wood to get famous

Be careful it is enourmous

What to see in Arizona

Go to the Grand Canyon you will be in a coma

Lets go to Georgia

There is the world of Coca Cola

Go to Nevada

Get lost that's a not- a

America is great

It has 50 states!

Mein Lieblings-Hase

Hatte eine Liebe zum Honig

Er aß so sehr

Dass er gefüllt war

Und setzte sich nie wieder auf

Fall Time Fantasy's
The aroma of cinnamon cascades through the air........ My halcyon lullaby, serene and somnolent, stops the cry....... Idyllic and mellifluous but not nebulous for the baby falling asleep........ Dulcet desserts and succulent sauces leave me suffused........ A plethora of things I could do, but the Autumn breeze is inexorable........ And I wish nothing else but to watch the leaves that encompass me to ebb languidly.......... Desultorily I try to get something done, but I'd rather bask in the Autumn sun...........

Can I join? I am thinking of a poem...

April 13, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/wittykittycute

My poem:
Tomber tout autor de moi,
Rouge, jaune, orange et un peu vert,
J'ai escalade l'arbre,
Il y a quelque chose la bas,
C'est trop tot pour les feuilles se desplacer dans l'air,
Je grimpe jusqu'a ce que je voie... blanc?
Blanc dans un arbre? Je sais que c'est, sur ses pieds elle est legere,
Trois, deux, un... MEOW! Je descend l'arbre pour voir elle est tombee. Elle reprend moi... MRROW! Je regarde Elle et Elle regarde moi, nous tordons nos whiskers, nous jouons ensembel jusqu'a l'aub.
Je reviens, couvert de feuilles, pour voir mon propietare surpris tinder la pelouse...

Translation:
Falling all around me,
Red, yellow, orange and a bit of green,
I climb up the tree,
There is something up there,
It is too early for the leaves to be falling in the air,
I climb further up until I see... white?
White in a tree? I know who it is, on her feet she is quite light.
Three, two, one... MEOW! I climb down the tree to see where she has fallen. She gets me back... MRROW! I look at her and she looks at me, we twitch our whiskers, we play together until dawn.
I come back, covered in leaves, to see my surprised owner mowing the lawn...

There might be a few mistakes... maybe not a few...
I hope you liked this anyway!

This is my original poem except it is in French this time.

La forêt est ......

Arbres et buissons partout

Il y a beaucoup à voir

Venez visiter dans la forêt

Vous pouvez vous reposer sous un arbre

La forêt est un .....

<Pre> Hiding Place </ pre>

Couvert par des buissons

Camouflage dans les arbres

Les animaux se cachent partout

Accroupis à genoux

La forêt est un .......

<Pre> Tree House </ pre>

Les oiseaux construisent des nids dans les branches

Alors que d'autres se cachent dans des creux d'arbres

Ruches d'abeilles suspendues aux membres longs

Leurs maisons se balancent dans la brise

La forêt est un ........

<Pre> Shelter </ pre>

Des créatures sous des arbustes épais cachés au froid

Une canopée d'arbres protégeant les animaux de la pluie

Les animaux se penchent sous les arbres pour ne pas devenir enneigés

Les racines des arbres agissant comme drain
