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
Hello there. Can someone help me a bit with word "thus"? I've been looking for one in Cambridge Dictionary and Cobuild Advanced Learner's Dictionary. It says:
> with this result
> They planned to reduce staff and thus to cut costs.
It is easy.
> Burke knocked out Byrne, thus becoming champion.
Why did becoming use?
I understand it as:
Burke knocked out Byrne, thus became champion. Or Burke knocked out Byrne, thus had became champion.
> Fold the sheets thus.
Is the folded sheets the result?
> Thus the Romans left Britain.
I have some problems with history science, but after that why Thus is placed on the first position?
