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.

Variation of the əʊ sound (like in Show) in British English
I read the əʊ sound changes a bit when an L follows, making it sound more like it was ɒʊ (ɒ is the sound in Hot), according to this site: https://notendur.hi.is/peturk/KENNSLA/02/TOP/Amvowels.html
(scroll down to Diphthongs)
Is it true? in which dialects does it happen? And how do I make it? Thanks in advance.
