OUR ~3R i.CH NEIGHBOURS -Hugh Lawrence
When I visited the French Island
of Guar.eloupe in 1928, in my early
t'ent-tl jit' before that year's
hurricrLane, I was so impressed. that
I a.:'.;i--. rcg;retfted being born in
IDoiMrnic.a. S tr oU;ing one md',ning at
the :..ay I observed a few young men
t ell dressed \vith collars, ties, ,
waistcoats and in grey & black suits
each carrying a suitcase. I in-
quired from one of them as to their
whereabouts, I was told that they
were on their way to France by boat
to study to become Professeurs(which
meant teachers).
I could immediately see that the
two wars Britain fought with France
to capture Dominica had kept us
back a great deal. I could see cleal-
ly that the Freneh Government had
the ability to colonize her mini-
sto.ts- even better than Britain.
During the short period of time
France occupied Dominica roads were
built all over the country. At one
time we spo-e French, and another
time Englit4h We are hemmed in be.-
tween our Oiwo French neighbours,

goers are compelled to take French
lessons. France has now given us a
near two million dollar sport stad-
ium. A French Bank was opened here
on 15th Jan.1979. We may become a
state of that rich country,never
again to change.
EDIT R'S NOTE:: As one who has both
English ard French blood in her
veins, iHugh Lawrence's letter re-
minds me of what the great C.L.R.
James said at the Trinidad Library
during Federation: "I am a black
man. But I can never be 'anti-Brit-
ish; because the wonderful English
language is in my heart, my blood
and my brai.%." He expounded his
theory wonderfully. Now Hugh Law-
rence has a rich comn .id of that
language. I shall quote on the op-
posite column one of the greatest:'.
and yet simplest of poems about the
English language. What is a stadium?
or a Bai -. in comparison ...?

W 0 R D S by Edward Thomas
Out of us all
that make rhymes,
Will you choose
Sometimes -
As the winds use
A crack in a wall
Or a drain,
Their joy or their pain
To whistle throughi--
Choose me,
You English words?
I know you:
You are light as dreams,
Tough as oak,
Precious aa golt,
As poppies, and corn,
Or an old cloak;
Sweet as our blrd.-S
To the ear,
As the burnet rose
In the heat
Of Midsummer;
Strange as the races,
Of dead and unborn:
Strange and sweet,
And familiar,
To the eye,
As the dearest faces
That a. man knows,
And as lost homes are:
But though older far
As our hills are, old,-
Worn new
Again and again:
Young as our streams
After rain:
And as dear
As the earth which you prove
That we love.
Make me content
With some sweetness
From Wales
Whose nigbhtingales
HaVe no wings, -
From the names, and the things
No less.
Let me sometimes dance
With you,
Or climb
Ot stand perchance
In ecstasy,
In a rhyme,
As poets do.
