My favorite english translation is "The letter contains a poem."

How about the translation A poem is in the letter ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Barb.Young

Or “The poem is in the letter” since there’s no एक

Considering how the emphasis is on the letter, its better if we go with what duo suggests.

Or the poem is in the letter?

I think that would have to be "Kavitaa chitthee me hai." Changing the order changes the focus of the sentence. A native speaker could confirm.

I just had 'There is a poem in the letter' accepted, but I think you're right about 'The poem is in the letter'.

    Why not "The letter is in the poem?"

    Or: In the poem is a letter?

    Technically this is fine. But the use if this word order is mainly reserved for a chain of instructions, e.g. "On the street is a house, you go in the house, in the attic is a box, in the box is a letter, in the letter is a poem. You take the poem and read it to the girl that is also in the attic."
