Tom Jones

Hello,


I spend a long weeke end every two years in Wales for Rugby and especially this year, I heard during 80 minutes Delilah from Tom Jones.
The Millenium is a fantastic stadium and with all this Welch songs, you feel like oppressed, strange, it's great.


However, I need help for translation of this sentence:
"I saw the light on the night that I passed by her window"


The construction of this sentence makes me unsure.


The second sentence is:
"I saw the flickering shadows of love on her blind".
What does "blind" mean? Store in french, a kind of curtain?


Many thanks for your help.
Regards, Rodolphe.

  • Hiya Ruggerman,


    If I catch your drift, you could combine last Saturday Wales-France match and a concert in the Millenium stadium. What a lucky man you are!


    I saw the light on the night that I passed by her window.
    According to my dictionary, that is here a preposition meaning when.
    That Saturday that Rodolphe went to Wales.


    "her blind"?
    You are right. Her blind is the blind of her window. A blind is a window shutter, a roller window shade. If the blind is made of numerous horizontal slats, it's called venetian blind.


    Quite pleased to read you.
