Learning in Québec

My photo
I'm someone who began learning French when I was 53. I took a BA in French at 60 but wasn't happy with my level of comprehension (though I read very well). So, having really become comfortable with Spanish only by living on the Mexican border, I'm spending more time in Québec and near the border of Quebec, in Vermont, to see if I can do that here with French. I want to encourage others to do the same.

is Bruno?
Où-est-il? Bruno
who was the first
to speak to me,
first morning back,
“Les chiens!” “The dogs!”
coming our way
in street I might think
I was going to cross)
Bruno who smiled.

Bruno est revenu!
Il allait malade
avec la grippe
même dans l’hôpital!
Mais il est bon,
encore ici
stationnant les voitures
et tous va bien.
