The Passion of God-by Bautista Buljevich and Gonzalo Irazusta

In class of Literature and language, with Pilar and Pato, we made in pairs our first poem. This is our poem:

The Church of Pilar is full of fire anywhere,

Its passion illuminates every little and

infinitive space of darkness

 

God is presented there,

pane is replaced by love.

It´s ornaments shine as fire although

some of them are quondam.

 

And every day when the bell rings,

moving such as strong as a whale,

passion is felt more than never

 

Hundreds of people visiting the Church

every year.

Hundreds of souls celebrating near to it.

Hundreds of hearts resurrect there.

Hundreds of times we say sorry to God there.

Hundreds of times God forgives us.

Hundreds of times we are loved by God.

ANSWER:
The story talked about a black family in United States. They were not a rich family, however, they weren’t poor. The main characters were Wilbert, who is the father of the family, Dee, the mother, and two daughters called Lois who was the narrator and Wilma. The parents were saving money to buy a more comfortable house. However, one day, Wilbert arrived at home with a new car, a Cadillac. This caused Dee to get mad, as his husband had bought a new expensive car. When they were going to visit his family in the North, the police stopped them with the excuse that they were black and they were driving an expensive car. Wilbert was caught by the police and his family had stayed in the car, which was very dangerous and at that time black people were killed frequently. Some hours later, Wilbert came back, and everything was solved. Fortunately, the conflict between Dee and Wilbert was solved when he decided to sell the new car and bought a cheaper one.

Dear Diary                                                                                                             September 13th

It was at ten o’clock, when two officers, called Sir Matthew and Hugh Witherington, arrived at the prison and interrogated me. When they entered, I was convinced that they thought that I was blind. Nevertheless, something very strange and badocurred. I realized that they were testing me. I thing that it was because they began doubting themselves if I was blind. Therefore, I realized that this interview was not going to be positive. I was very nervous. After some time walking and talking together, Sir Hugh Witherington took his glass eye out of his socket. Therefore, I seemed terrified, so they realized that I was lying, and I was not blind at all. I´m very scared about the trial of tomorrow. I feel that it won’t be good for me at all. I don’t want to stay in prison any more. However, I’m sure I will stay here for a long, long time.

Language Test

Enter the correct verb tense into each box in the following passage. The base form of the verb is supplied in brackets. Then check your answers by clicking on the button next to each box.

Over the last twenty years, the average size of households has fallen (fall) dramatically. The number of one-person households has grown (grow) due largely to the ageing of the population, as has the number of one-parent families. Couples having smaller families contributed (contribute) to the fall in household size.

In 1976, 60% of families were (be) couples with children. By 1996, this had fallen (fall) to 51%. Part of this change can be attributed to the increase in one-parent families with dependent children, but most of the change is due to the increase in the proportion of couple-only families. People are having (have) children later in life, and are living longer. Therefore, they are spending (spend) more time living in couple-only families, both before they have families and after their children have left (leave) home. However, children are leaving home later. In 1981, 34% of children aged 20-24 are living (live) with their parents. By 1991, this had increased (increase) to 40%. This increase has, to some extent, countered the fall in the couples with non-dependent children only.
