PREPOSITIONS….AGAIN!

Look at this poem:

In a envelope,
It goes from me to you,
Through the air
Above the clouds,
Down the road,
In your mailbox,
And you take it
In your hands;
Out of sight but
Not out of mind.

What is ‘it’ (line 2)? What are the last two lines?

‘It’ is the envelope.

The last two lines refer to a well-known proverb in English, ‘Out of sight, out of
mind’

Now, watch this video to remember the usage of some prepositions

Prepositions show a specific relationship (spatial, temporal, etc.) between people, things or concepts. Some have
specific meaning (under, above, etc.), while others may have multiple meanings depending on the verb they are
associated with (in, to, at, etc.).

Here is a list of the most common prepositions in English:

about
along
above
among
across
around
after
at
against
by
before
behind
below
between
beneath
despite
down
during
to[ward]
under
for
