This is an "Easy Learning" document. It is a computer transcription of the "Le Rameur" in 18th Century Kurrent script. “Le Rameur” describes a man who is rowing on a beautiful river. All is calm and you can only hear the sounds of his oars. The images are gorgeous and so is the rhythm. Then the poet starts to compare his effort to row with the effort of living; the river becomes the time that passes, he fights it but it brings him inevitably towards death.
