English Landscape Painters | Geoffrey Chatten

Garrowby by David Hockney.

O England, dear England, (by Luc, Romain, Adrien, Hugo)

Your countryside illuminates my life

The fields are yellow brown and green

It's a feast of colours

ô England, dear England,

When I imagine your orchard

When I walk in your woods

I feel free and I'm filled with happiness

ô England, dear England,

On the horizon, I only see plains with shimmering colours

I get exhilarated on the sweet scent of your roses

My eyes get bogged down in this heap of colours

O England, dear England,

Your road look so long

The horizon is so far

It's like in a beautiful dream.

 

O England ! (by Julia, Anna, Juliette, Lucas - a poem with rhymes !!)

With your so extraordinary vegetation

We can say that it's you who gets all the attention

You sparkle in the morning with the sun that illuminates you

When people tell you that you are a wonder

It's always true

Dear country of green grass,

of rainy days,

And of Sunday afternoon after a picnic

Among your dark meadows

And your bright shadows

the smell of the ground after the rain

The sounds of footsteps during a walk in the forest

The laughters from the loved people during a boat trip

The triangular river gently comes to the bottom of the forest

The flowers all along were taken care of by a florist

In the sky the birds are flying 

You can listen to the wind blowing
