There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

    It's a dangerous word "always", almost as dangerous as "never". ;)

    Prepositions were perfect, but I would have said "tonight", rather than at night.

    At night, all cats look grey.

    I'll see you tonight.

    I feel sorry that I couldn't be in the recent preposition session, I tried to be with you but I failed. I hope that we still have a lot to cover, so I can keep up with you :( .

    Wish me luck for next week :| .

    Never say never? Always say always? :)
    Thank you again for the quick response, @Lynne . :)

    @Lynne could you please give me some exercises or tests that I can attempt for learning the usage of prepositions? I usually mix up in and on.

    Prepositions of place is more difficult and complicated than those of time. :(
  • TeachTeach Your Teacher HomePosts: 9,662 mod
    Which is why we started with time. :smile:

    @Lynne what is the code today?
  • TeachTeach Your Teacher HomePosts: 9,662 mod
    I'm just generating it. :smile:
  • jsimancasfjsimancasf Posts: 87 ✭✭
    Thank you @Lynne! :D
  • jsimancasfjsimancasf Posts: 87 ✭✭
    It was awesome!!!. It was my first time and it was better than a class. Thank you very much to all of you. @Lynne you are great!!! :D
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,277 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    I really need to practice grammar in order to resolve prepositions issue especially in/on. I found few websites where I can practice them with exercises. I think small grammatical issues create big problems.
  • jsimancasfjsimancasf Posts: 87 ✭✭
    @Bubbly could you share the links you found?
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,277 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @jsimancasf sure. I will. :)
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,277 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @Zergul Hi Zergul. Pretty name. What does it mean? :)

    In Urdu "Zer" means wealth or pollen and "Gul" means flower.
  • jsimancasfjsimancasf Posts: 87 ✭✭
    @Bubbly, is Urdu your native language?
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,277 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @jsimancasf yes it is. :)
  • jsimancasfjsimancasf Posts: 87 ✭✭
    I see. It seems hard to learn. I read a little on internet. :)
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,277 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @jsimancasf do you want to learn Urdu? :)
  • jsimancasfjsimancasf Posts: 87 ✭✭
    @Bubbly really no, I only felt curious what you wrote regarding to Zergul's name. I think that learning Urdu could take a life for me. :blush:
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,277 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @jsimancasf OK. Don't worry it is not a difficult language. :) The name Zergul also exists in Urdu as well so I thought I should share some information about it. :)
  • TeachTeach Your Teacher HomePosts: 9,662 mod
    We will do a quick recap of the prepositions we have looked at so far, and we will start looking at prepositions of movement.
  • TeachTeach Your Teacher HomePosts: 9,662 mod
    Today we started with to and toward(s).
    Next week we will look at from and away from.
  • TeachTeach Your Teacher HomePosts: 9,662 mod
    Today we completed the first in our series of basic preposition sessions.

    So, you should all get this:-

    I was walking home one night, and was just going toward the tunnel, when I saw two glowing eyes. I ran away from the tunnel to the police station, and they told me that a tiger had escaped from the zoo!

  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 10,505 mod
    That will teach you to stay away from the tunnel at night and maybe take another way to go home when you come from work, because , who knows, next time you would see four glowing eyes coming toward you, @Lynne ! :)
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,277 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    or when you are going toward the tunnel, make sure the glowing eyes are away from it at that time, so that you can easily go to the home without running like a tiger who escaped from a zoo. :) :)
