PostSubject: Modal 'can' with the semi-modal 'used to'   Sun Jan 18, 2009 9:49 pm

Sometimes words assault the mind when one feels unable to do what one feels like to do...
Fortunately, the pen is a means of 'transfering one's energy' into black lines expressing 'light' or 'dark' ideas...
This is a very simple poem, easy to learn and teach, fitting 4MS pupils especially, and which can be taught to the other levels.
Wish it will help you to some extent...
I Swear to Free my Land!

I used to walk and see
Work as well as a bee
I used to draw, to write
Before I lost my sight.

I used to jump and run
With my friends to have fun
I used to dream, I can
Never now see the sun.

I used to greet the sky
To greet birds as they fly
To help them when they cry
All left I donít know why!

Now my heart is my sight
I can do what They canít
I can say ĎNOí and fight
Those who turned out my light.

With no feet I can stand
I can build with no hand
With Brother, with my Friend
I swear to free my Land!
