The Existence of Mountains, Lampposts and Rain

by Paisan Lemsan

Understand, I do understand.

Mountains aren't moved from their places,

but someone's been bringing lampposts here.

While rain still falls here and anywhere.

I know, but how should I do?

Even though everything could be changed,

such the crowd of birds should move to seek for their foods,

then new creatures would come in place.

There's no rain some year, but sometime heavy… Continue

Madame's dog

by Soraida

"Get out! Get out! Get out!"

Someone shouted at a skinny dog.

The cornered dog rolled to and fro its eyes

to tell that it had a heart also.

The dog grinned,

stucked its four legs and stared at them.

Its eyes bathed in warm tears while it though

Could I chase you from your home?

It barked, It should bite , thought the man.

He stared at the dog's eyes,

picked a stone and raised his… Continue

The Laughing Girl

by Paisan Lemsan

She comes from the city.

The girl who has white pearl skin.

We greet with her language.

She talks to flowers,

the sky, cats and people,

seems they're new matters.

When she runs on the road,

in the field and the rubber forest,

everyone smiles at her.

The girl feels glad and laughs nonstop until mom hits her.

Sound of her crying looks like the laughter.

Till her tears… Continue

I always did like Neil Young from my first days in University.  His music is always changing as the times change.  You may find some you don't like as much as others, but he is usually very good to listen to for studying English. Learning a song and singing it is a very effective way to learn a language.  You can probably remember every song you learned as a child because music uses both sides of the brain. The English alphabet song is a very good example.

Hi Soraida.  You asked a good question about articles. Articles confuse most people because in English we have two types. You have to decide if you are talking about mountains (all mountains) or about the mountains, which are in a certain place or country.

If we talk about mountains, lamp posts, and rain, we are generally talking about all mountains, lamp posts, and rain. If I hear the rain I am probably talking about rain that is falling near me and not all rain that has ever fallen on earth. The is the definite article which means this rain, this school or this lamp post. 

The lamp posts are green would be different from lamp posts in general. Example without the definite article: Lamp posts have lamps so we can see at night is not using an article so it refers to all lamp posts. If your poem is about all mountains, all lamp posts and all rain, you don't need the. If the poem is about these things in a certain place or time, you may need to use the.

If we are talking about one countable noun like a pencil or an orange, we use indefinite articles (a or an). Give me a pencil (any pencil). Give me the pencil (we are asking for a certain pencil). If I can see your translation I will help you.
