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.

A fun book for anyone really interested in accents, but I've posted it here because their website gives you the chance to listen to and record the word "potato".

    Do you pronounce 'spud' like 'potato' @mheredge? I'm imagining that.

    :)

    Spud is a British colloquial name for a potato.

    In the services (army, navy), peeling the spuds was jankers - punishment duty.
