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.
November by Walter de la Mare
Many times I'm confused whether I have to write a word in plural or in single form.
For example, recently I have read @Lynne
's correction to @chyijung
's post in The weather
Here is Lynne's correction:Sure, the wind tries to get through the windows, and makes a howling sound outside my apartment on the 10th floor. I have to close all the window to avoid the rain splashing into the house.
I have the problem with "all the window
Do we have to use plural form when we put the word "all" in front of another noun and do we have to add "of" after "all"?
So which one is correct or not correct:
- all the window, all the windows or all of the windows ?
I know I've read some explanation somewhere, but I'm confused again now.
