One moment alone in the garden,
Under the August skies;
The moon had gone, but the stars shone on, -
Shone like your beautiful eyes.
Away from the glitter and gaslight,
Alone in the garden there,
While the mirth of the throng, in laugh and song,
Floated out on the air.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
In lands I never saw -- they say
Immortal Alps look down --
Whose bonnets touch the firmament --
Whose sandals touch the town --
Meek at whose everlasting feet
A myriad daisy play --
Which, Sir, are you and which am I
Upon an August day?
Have you ever joined a book club?
I was wondering if you would like to join in a book club for training our english reading skills. It could be for us to choose a theme and a book for each month, and to discourse about it later. We could choose books in the public domain because it's easier for everyone to acess.
Emma Watson, for example, created recently a feminist book club in GoodReads and I found it very interesting because people were very motivated to take part in every discussion.
