"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

    @Bubbly , I think north Americans prefer to use"connect me to sb" instead of"put me through to someone".
    An example:
    A:Hi, Pearson Spector Litt .What can I do for you?
    B:Hello,could you put me through Mr Spector,please?!
    A:Of course.Hold on a minute.
    A:Hi, Pearson Spector Litt .What can I do for you?
    B:Hello,could you connect me to Mr Spector,please?!
    A:Of course.Hold on a minute.

    I have app in my phone, it has numerous of phrasal verbs. One is "Count On". How we can use it? Because that app tells its meaning "trust on someone"
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 29,805 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @mandyb count on someone to depend on someone to do what you want or expect them to do for you.
    The whole team was counting on me, and I let them down.

  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 29,805 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @Pedro no idea. @Lynne will help us on that.

    @Shiny03 I couldn't find this word 'crop off' in any dictionaries.
  • Shiny03Shiny03 Posts: 2,683 ✭✭✭✭

    I want to hear it,too. @Lynne
  • PedroPedro Posts: 13 ✭✭
    @Bubbly and @Shiny03 - It's from a movie. No mistake - I rewritten it from subtitles:( Unfortunately I don't remember a context.
