    So many stars, but not as much light!

    I'm having trouble understanding some of the details of this sentence. The context is a young girl is sharing a poem she just wrote with her mom.

    เมื่อแม่ได้ยินคำกลอนวรรคท้าย ที่ว่าแต่ดาวเป็นหมื่นแสน ไม่ลว่างเหมือนตะวัน แม่พอใจมาก

    When her mom heard the last line that said even though? there are hundreds of thousands of stars, they aren't as bright as the sun, and mom was satisfied (with the poem?).

    When mom heard the last line that said but hundreds of thousands of stars, they aren't as bright as the sun, mom was satisfied (with the poem?- yes).

    just for clarity,

    when mum heard the last line, which said "but hundreds of thousands of stars aren't as bright as the sun", she was satisfied.

    all the best.

    Thanks, the quotes there really helped...I couldn't tell which part was a line from the poem and which parts were what mom was thinking, etc.

    Very clear!
