One sight
Other sight

Discovery of secret Poitou, while going far from the tumults, of the stir, of the hubbubs,
Accompanied by the song of the corbels, magpies, blackbirds and other sparrows,
the glance attracted by the furtive appearances of the birds and small wild animals,
Agreeably inattentive by the lowing of the cows, hennissement of the horses, the braying of the asses, the bleat of the sheep and goats, the barking of the dogs and noise of the farms,
Nostrils flattered by the perfume of the flowers, grass, hays, strong but natural and pleasant odors of the manures and liquid manures, yes!
Recognizing hard traditions of my country ancestors, registered in the landscape,
Without the aggressive brutal musical “culture” urban and insurportable for healthy ears, and "songs" with the violent words vociferated by inexpressive or heinous faces.
Ouf! that makes me good of speaking about my country.
