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.

Which one is correct?
1) The political objective of the contract was to finish the war

2) The political objective of the contract was finishing the war

    Both are correct, but the tone is different. The first sounds more direct and final, as if it were spoken by someone from the military, or a history professor. The second sounds more conversational, as if it were spoken by you or I during a normal conversation over a cup of coffee, or by someone not involved in the war who was explaining the contract to both of us.
