What is your level of Portuguese language proficiency?

Very little. But I love the sound of Portuguese and would like to be able to speak it at least a little when I eventually visit the Alentejo. I have this dream of being a Portuguese cork farmer when I retire. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vu5XgK_Un_g - Here is what the Kansas prarie looks like.

    Hi David. I like your start on a sonnet. I added a few more lines. Care to finish it off? :)

    When fourteen lines appear upon a page
    Deftly placed according to a scheme
    Of quatrains two and sestet one, a theme...
    Poetry rhyme and meter are all the rage

    Should we try to write a poem as a team?
    Do we want our poem to sound like a song?
    I never knew fourteen lines were so long
    We need lots of paper, lets buy a ream

    Hey David. Oddly enough, there was no original intention there. What a strange coincidence; thanks for pointing that out.
