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.

    Hi @raseelrose2,

    This is a kind of word challenge. You've to make sentences or a passage using the phrasal verbs given above.

    Happy doing!

    For instance,

    I guess, I've logged in to the wrong site, so I should better log off.

    Sorry Dora for misunderstanding.
    Yesterday I signed up for kitely, but when I came to log in using my details, i recieved a message declaring that account is not available, although I recieved a confirmation email. When I closed the webpage, howeve, I realised I had enterd the wrong password.

    I am happy to be corrected

    @Dora
    This is fantastic! Phrasal verbs are something we must conquer if we want to sound natural! I think we can all benefit from and have fun practicing them here!

    "log in"

    (1) I think I can log in tonight at around 10:00 p.m. Tokyo time.
    (2) Just when I thought I had logged in LEN, the battery went dead.. Now I have to find a power outlet.

    Do we sign in to Windows 10 or do we log in?
    Do you use a password to log in or a pin code?
  • takafromtokyotakafromtokyo Posts: 2,325 ✭✭✭✭
    (1) So, is there any difference in saying "to log in" and "to sign in"?

    (2) I wanted to log in Skype, but the password had completely slipped out of my mind. I was typing in bunch of passwords and all of them just got rejected.

    @mheredge
    So, I guess "log in" is basically used for computers, right?

    Yes that's right @takafromtokyo. I can't think of logging in or out of anything other than computers and computer systems. I check in or out of a hotel and I check in for a flight. I might sign in to a computer system or application, but I can also sign in to visit someone in a secure office or to go into a place that is in some way restricted.

    @Dora @takafromtokyo
    Can the following sentence be used ?

    I got up early this morning, did quickly my household work, to log in even faster on my computer.
  • takafromtokyotakafromtokyo Posts: 2,325 ✭✭✭✭
    @Paulette
    I think as long as you're logging in your computer it's okay to use. I'm not so sure if you need to say "log in ON your computer" or not.

    I quickly did my household work earlier this morning so that I could log in to my computer.

    Be careful with passwords when logging in a public computer.

    "log in"

    (1) When I log in this forum, one thing I like to do is to check out mr friends' walls to see how they're doing. But I always forget to check out mine.

    (2) When was the last time you logged in LEN? How often do you log in?
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 28,148 mod
    I never can work out how the log in process works here as sometimes I'm already logged in when I access LEO, but other times I'm logged out. I never log out because I don't use any computer that other people can access. Sometimes LEO logs me out in the middle of when I'm writing something which can be a pain.
  • DoraDora Posts: 3,281 ✭✭✭✭
    Every time I log in the LE forum hoping to see @filauzio, @Just-Learn and @peaceculture2 's responses, but soon I'd to log out, disappointed. :(
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 28,148 mod
    Maybe you are looking in the wrong places @Dora. What I don't understand is how sometimes the Forum logs me out while I'm in the middle of something. But this could be because I never log out.

    As long as I see this message it means, I succeeded to log in, before I log out I would like to invite you to genius thread @Dora
  • takafromtokyotakafromtokyo Posts: 2,325 ✭✭✭✭
    Example sentences
    (1) When was the last time you logged in Skype?
    (2) Have you had any troubles logging in and out of the forum?
  • filauziofilauzio Posts: 1,617 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I set up my alarm-clock to get awoken at the right time for joining the skype session, so that I could log in to my account, and the whole matter was going to be as easy as falling off of a log.
    Unfortunately, I hadn't neither to log in nor to log out after session, because I missed the alarm and kept sleeping like a log... a loudly snoring kind of ...

    I hope @Dora won't be disappointed for my neglect any longer... please put on your wonderful smile again :) ;)

    Example sentence
    (1) Thanks to @Yellowtail and all the support from other fellow members, every time I log in the forum, I can see it in a nice smartphone view mode.
  • PaulettePaulette Posts: 7,391 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @takafromtokyo @Dora

    Every morning when I log in the forum I guess who was first up today?
  • takafromtokyotakafromtokyo Posts: 2,325 ✭✭✭✭
    @Paulette

    >Every morning when I log in the forum I guess who was first up today?

    This sentence sounds a little bit unclear to me. Here's my suggestion.

    Either...
    (1) Every morning when I log in the forum, guess who is up first?

    Or
    (2) When I logged in the forum this morning, guess who was up first?

    (1) is asking about what happens every morning, whereas (2) is asking about what happened this morning.

    @mheredge @Dora
    What do you think about my suggestion?
  • PaulettePaulette Posts: 7,391 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @takafromtokyo I agree with your sentence:

    1) Every morning when I log in the forum, guess who is up first?

    That is what I mean. Thanks for the suggestion!

    I didn't sleep like a log last night @filauzio as when I arrived at the hotel in Milan I was told that my reservation had been cancelled due to an invalid card. Since I'd booked the room three weeks ago, I was a bit surprised to see two emails to this effect had been sent a few hours before while I was travelling to Milan and had no internet. The girl said the place was full and I would need to find another hotel. I managed to persuade her that 10pm this would be extremely difficult especially given how hard it had been three weeks earlier to find anything reasonable in central Milan on the dates I wanted. The long and the short of it was she found a spare camp bed to put in the corner of a dorm full of guys who were snoring their heads off. Tonight I'm in another room and so far there's no snoring (I'm sharing just with one lady).
