Je ne peux pas écrire des poèmes

Je voudrais aimer mon père

mais mes souvenirs sont amers

je n’ sais pas comment on gère

la douleur qu’ils génèrent

Je voudrais manquer mon père

les moments son lacérés

je ne connais la colère

la doleur qu’il génère

So this is my writing production for this week’s french class, it is called Mon père, and it is a Kyrielle, a French form of rhyming poetry written in quatrains (a stanza consisting of 4 lines).

    Great photo and poem. I can’t say I understood the lot but it sure rhymes and I’ll translate it too 🙂

    Love the photo, and the poem’s simplicity. My French is rusty, but I get the message.

    I want to love my father

    but my memories are bitter

    I don ‘know how to manage

    pain they generate

    I would miss my father

    times his lacerated

    I know anger

    it generates the douleur (pain)

    Is that a correct translation?

    I am really struggling learning a little French to help me on my trip in the fall. Therefore I am really impressed that you not only wrote a poem in French but you made it rhyme! And you wrote a poem that could really evoke an emotion from your reader. Tres Bon! Thanks also for reading my posts.

  8. wonderful photograph!

    I love this poetry and I’m relieved that I can understand, therefore, not all of my french has left me!

    Ah, relationships with parents… Do you know the song ‘4am’ by Our Lady Peace? It’s pretty awesome and quite intense. You should check it out. 🙂
