Hello,

I'm just wondering if this passage is correct:

"Years ago, which seems like an eternity past, I was a naive child."

Is it "past" or "passed"?

Thanks

Adjective: past
EX: in past times, in times past.

:( "..., which seems like an eternity past,..."



Verb: passes, passed
EX: Time passes quickly, Time passed us by,

:D "..., which seems like an eternity (has) passed/gone by,..."

All the best,

I have a suggestion. Try:
  • "Years ago -- and it seems like an eternity -- I was a naive child."

What do you think?

:D
