French Tries

It may not be as exciting as English,
but French tries.

Its word for the 'beauty spot'
and its word
for the protective button
on the tip of a foil
is its word for the insect, the 'fly'.

And in French it's 'mouche! ' for 'bull's-eye! '

It is an intriguing question whether English or French is the more exciting language. English is much more the language for the modern world, and more adaptable. French does indeed try, having its Academie Francaise to supervise the language and make rules. English has no equivalent to the Academie, except for its best dictionaries-Oxford ones. Just a few thoughts.
grown up words trying to say something new.
