Updates & a Poem

First I want to thank Nydia. I won the cat keyring she was giving away! If you haven't looked at her etsy shop yet, then please do! Everything there is amazing.

Next thing is, first quarter report cards came in the mail yesterday. I was so relieved when I saw my grades! I only have five classes, but they really keep me busy! I am going to have to continue to work hard to keep my grades up. The hardest class is French 4. Luckily I have a French friend who can help, lol. I am glad Emeline is so willing to help me.

World History 1: A+
Business Law: A
Advanced Placement English: A+
French 4: A-
Mythology: A+

I've been reading some W.B. Yeats poems lately. Here is his poem The Cat and the Moon. Hope you like it!

THE cat went here and there
And the moon spun round like a top,
And the nearest kin of the moon,
The creeping cat, looked up.
Black Minnaloushe stared at the moon,
For, wander and wail as he would,
The pure cold light in the sky
Troubled his animal blood.
Minnaloushe runs in the grass
Lifting his delicate feet.
Do you dance, Minnaloushe, do you dance?
When two close kindred meet,
What better than call a dance?
Maybe the moon may learn,
Tired of that courtly fashion,
A new dance turn.
Minnaloushe creeps through the grass
From moonlit place to place,
The sacred moon overhead
Has taken a new phase.
Does Minnaloushe know that his pupils
Will pass from change to change,
And that from round to crescent,
From crescent to round they range?
Minnaloushe creeps through the grass
Alone, important and wise,
And lifts to the changing moon
His changing eyes.
