Multilingual flashcard: Dew

Dew in 10 languages

multilingual flashcards dew

I love being up early enough to see the grass jewelled with dew. Spiderwebs gleaming in the early morning sunshine.I walk through a park to get to work and really enjoy getting a bit of greenery (or ‘shinrinyoku’/ forest-bathing as it is called in Japan) into my day!

Have you ever heard the Greek myth about dew?

The story I was told is that Eos, the goddess of the dawn, fell in love with a mortal man, Tithonus. Zeus, king of the gods, granted Tithonus eternal life but not eternal youth so he gradually grew older and weaker, while Eos stayed unchanging. In some stories, his body begins to shrink down until he becomes a grasshopper. The dew on the grass is Eos’s tears as she wakes with the dawn and weeps for her lost love.

  1. If I’m honest… roll over and go back to sleep 😂. I’m not much of a morning person tbh.

    1. In the holidays I usually end up staying up until about 1.30/2 and waking up around 9 so I think that’s my natural body clock. Still, I feel like I’ve achieved a lot when I do get up early!

      1. The longest I last is till midnight! If I get past that I get very grumpy, mainly because if I am up at that time it’s due to illness. The only exception is when I stayed up to finish How Not to Disappear!

    1. Funnily, most bookworms I know are night owls… I wonder if that’s just a coincidence?

      1. Hmmm I think the reason is that we are usually busy during the day.🤔 So we tend to read or do things we enjoy at night. I am not sure though.😅
