Unpoetic grammar - please help me write my poem correctly
I decided to learn some English by writing poetry and doing so I wanted to write a comparsion but then stumbled upon unpoetic grammar.
In Germany we have the tradition to make a whish when seeing a shooting star. So I put this as a metaphor in my poem but then got some problems. It reads:
...like desperately wanting to see a falling star
and then not to know what to whish upon
or is it: (always?)
> where is the difference between a falling and a shooting star? Is there any?
or is it:
and then not KNOWING
or ist it:
... what to whish FOR
Could you help me please? Thank you in advance, dear native speakers!
