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 Marianne, yes he did. Funny enough about the fact that `bleed`has different meanings.
    I am really curious to know what Lynne`s husand had done with their radiators.

    Oh I see I am in the weather section and wrote something else.
    Well we had no sun today and it was quite cold. I was outside without many layers of clothings - I was cold when I came in.

    I guess radiators are kind of linked to the weather, as we only need them when it's cold.

    It was raining when I got up this morning, so Laika is still waiting for her walk. I think I've turned into a wuss, in England it wouldn't have bothered me.

    Scattered clouds, rain only to late afternoon.

    Still cold without any rain or snow.

    I have only seen ten minutes of rain in the last month. It is funny how you get to miss it, but I don't ever miss the leaden skies and cold.

    Last night's rain was stupendous!
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 9,586 mod
    @Helvio, you sound like a weather reporter.

    I got soaked walking Laika. It serves me right for waiting until the rain supposedly stopped, because when it started again, it was much worse.

    We also had rain last night, but today it's 11°C again. Thanks for sending me back my nice weather @Lynne.

    @Lynne, is it a good thing? :))

    To @Lynne,

    Today when I woke up the rain was pouring down, I was a bit lazy to wear my rain cape but I needed to arrive dry at work. The rain followed me during all my way to work and it was extremely pleasant. It is raining yet, there is no wind out there and all I can see from my window are so quiet and calm.

    Hi Helvio,

    No blame, no shame. Just a bit of fun.

    Great post above. When you have to put on your cape, just think of Batman. :)

    It keeps threatening to snow here, I think the weather is playing tricks.
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 Inactive
    Thank you Lynne, corrections are always welcome!

    I was trying to don't sound like a weather reporter. :D

    It's still nice winter weather here, though a bit more windy than the days before.

    !Note - when a word ends in "y" we add "ier" to form the comparative.

    I couldn't understand yesterday why everyone kept saying that it was cold. It wasn't quite as sweltering as it had been, but was still warmer than a good summer's day in the UK. Apparently it's colder than normal by local standards. It's perfect for me of course.

    @tuco2711 what's that in Centigrade? I have no idea what that is if it's not Centigrade.

    Here in Mysore in south India it is a very pleasant 25 degrees and mostly sunny (midday).

    Danger of slippering. During a day it is chancing from cold to warm and that leads to the danger. I step alonge as if I am 80+.

    It is raining this afternoon, but it wasn't this morning when the city council treated us with pancakes, french fries, pea soup, jenever, mint tea etc. :)

    April - why has the council treared you with those stuff? Are you in an excepional situation?
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 10,398 mod
    This one is because it is the end of the year and next month they will treat the residents because it will be a new year @Hermine. :)
    They are good for us, aren't they :))
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 9,586 mod
    I don't know if they are good for you, but they are certainly good to you @April.

    @Hermine, you would only be in danger of a slippering if you had been naughty.

    We have managed to hit the UK at last, but had to travel through a lot of windy, wet weather. Since reaching Blighty, it's been sunny, windy, rainy and everything in between. I always forget how much I love England. :)
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 10,398 mod
    OMG ! :((
    @Lynne, would you please please please explain the use of the preposition in to be good for and to be good to ...

    Orange juice is good for you.
    When I give hubby an orange juice, I'm being good to him, because it's good for him.

    This wet and windy weather is not good for me. Hubby was good to me when he walked Laika this morning.
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 10,398 mod
    Thanks @Lynne.
    Are you not well Lynne? (This wet and windy weather is not good for me.)
  • HermineHermine Moderator Posts: 6,680 mod
    Hubby will make me a hot water bottle.
