L’odeur de mon pays était dans une pomme

Lucie Delarue-Mardrus

Lucie DELARUE-MARDRUS (Ferveur, 1902)

L’odeur de mon pays était dans une pomme.
Je l’ai mordue avec les yeux fermés du somme,
Pour me croire debout dans un herbage vert.
L’herbe haute sentait le soleil et la mer,
L’ombre des peupliers y allongeaient des raies,
Et j’entendais le bruit des oiseaux, plein les haies,
Se mêler au retour des vagues de midi…

Combien de fois, ainsi, l’automne rousse et verte
Me vit-elle, au milieu du soleil et, debout,
Manger, les yeux fermés, la pomme rebondie
De tes prés, copieuse et forte Normandie ?…
Ah! je ne guérirai jamais de mon pays!
N’est-il pas la douceur des feuillages cueillis
Dans la fraîcheur, la paix et toute l’innocence?

Et qui donc a jamais guéri de son enfance ?…

A was an Apple pie;
B bit it;
C cut it;
D dealt it;
E eat it;
F fought for it;
G got it;
H had it;
J joined it;
K kept it;
L longed for it;
M mourned for it;
N nodded at it;
O opened it;
P peeped in it;
Q quartered it;
R ran for it;
S stole it;
T took it;
V viewed it;
W wanted it;
X, Y, Z, and &, all wish’d for a piece in hand

An apple a day

An apple a day,
Sends the doctor away.

Apple in the morning,
Doctor’s warning.

Roast apple at night,
Starves the doctor outright.

Eat an apple going to bed,
Knock the doctor on the head

Three each day, seven days a week,
Rosy apple, rosy cheek.

The Little Red House with a Star Inside

1
Once upon a time a little boy named Johnny asked his mother to make a mommy magic for him.

“How would you like to find a little red house with no windows, no doors, a chimney on top, and a star inside?” asked his mother.

Johnny said he would like that very much.

2
So Johnny and his mother went for a walk.

They saw Johnny’s friend, Jenny, jumping rope.

“Do you know where I can find a little red house with no windows, no doors, a chimney on top, and a star inside” asked Johnny?

“No.” said Jenny. “But maybe Farmer Jones knows that.”

3
Johnny and his mother walked until they came to Farmer Jones.

Johnny asked him, “Do you know where I can find a little red house with no windows, no doors, a chimney on top, and a star inside?”

“No.” said Farmer Jones. But I bet my Grandma knows. She has lived a long, long time, and she knows most everything.”

4
They went to see Grandma Jones. She was rocking back and forth in a rocking chair on the front porch.

Johnny asked her, “Grandma, Jones, do you know where I can find a little red house with no windows, no doors, a chimney on top, and a star in the middle?”

“Go into the orchard and ask Mr. Wind.” said Grandma Jones.
5
So Johnny went into the orchard.

Mr. Wind came and blew so hard, that an apple fell down onto Johnny’s lap.

“This is what we’ve been looking for!” shouted Johnny. They cut it open, and inside was a star.

Johnny and his mother walked home and showed Grandma Jones, Farmer Jones, and Jenny the apple. Then each of them ate a piece of the apple.
