tense and the structure of sentence
Any error with the following sentences?
I said hello to dogs that I met on my way. I heard birds singing, having sunshine on my face and feeling the coldness passed by ice on meadows. Suddenly, I felt relaxed. I haven't felt in this way for quite a long time.
The second sentence has problems with the verbs being consistant. Compound predicates should have the verbs in the same tense. I'm not sure what you mean by 'passed by ice on meadows', so I'll take a guess. These sentences create a nice image.
I heard birds singing, had sunshine on my face and felt the coldness on the meadows.
