Writing and translating a poem

Postby Curry_Girl » Tue 02.19.2013 7:44 pm

I wrote this poem and then translated it and wanted to know if the vocabulary and grammar were correct. I know it's not too much of a poem but any practice and correction is good. I also apologize for no kanji. :)

I love the snow,
But, snow is water
And sooner or later it will melt.

ゆきがすきだ
でも,ゆきはみずだ
そして,そばんとける。

Yeah it was supposed to be そうばん. Thanks for catching that. :) I do drop letters while typing. A very bad habit that needs to be worked on. XD
