- Using “skies” instead of “sky” 5 answers
Dear Learned Grammarians,
I am reveiwing a poem of mine in which I describe a plane death spiralling from the skies. While I realise that in every day language and conversation I would most likely refer to 'sky' instead of 'skies', and that in poetry 'skies' has historically been permissable, is this still the case today? Or am I being quaintly old-fashioned?
Many thanks in advance for your shared wisdoms.
