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.

Confusing abbreviations

I just had to work out what DM meant in this sentence:-

For those that don't know, Clyde is the Discord bot. He's been telling you things from time to time now, i.e. if you try to DM someone that's blocked you, if you use the /nick command to change your nickname.

Now I can add a new meaning of DM to my current list:-

Doc Martens
Deutsch Mark
drogerie markt

And now:-
direct message

I will add it to the list:-

    Context is key with a lot of abbreviations, but it is incredibly difficult to work out what they could be in a second language. And the age of technology has made things even more difficult, as everything seems to be abbreviated while "DMing"!
