| With Rhyme and Reason 12/14/06 . chapter 1
Stunning, really. I very much like this. I especially appreciate that you don't waste any words. Every syllable counts in this poem, and that's often a very difficult thing to do. Your idea is veiled in an opaque fabric of imagery, and that's also very admirable-there's nothing I hate more than poets just telling people what their poems mean... seriously-why don't they just write an essay about it? At any rate, really great job. You have an elegant and learned style.

I loved the structure, rhyme scheme, and word choice. Living proof that rhyme doesn't necessarily make a poem simplistic. Keep it up!

This work is marvelous in that it shows your versatility. It has a classic feel - like the poetry of Yeats, Keats, Wordsworth and those other British poets that I didn't care much for in my British Lit class I was forced to take...
I wasn't sure about the rhyme when I first started reading it-rhyming couplets can be singsongy, but I don't feel like yours is at all! :) You were successful with it, just like Alexander Pope.
I need to get a dictionary to look up some of the words you used, but the piece was beautifully written. You have a talent and keep using it!

There is not a greivous amount I can say that would be constructive, other than I envy your language.

| poppy nowis 10/18/06 . chapter 1
oh i like the rhyming in this, because it works without being so obvious it seems forced, something i can never do S anyway lovely use of vocabulary

Wow how poetic you are! That was so sureal...all I could do was continue reading after the first line. Keep up the good work.
By the way one thing did stand out to me though:
"And he of taste, of redolence so sweet"
Do you mean:
"And (the) of taste, of redolence so sweet"
Just thought i would mention that one.

Wow... that was extremely overwhelming to read, and I've come away from it feeling rather dizzy.
I'm not sure quite how to explain what I mean by that.
I would've left you a signed review, but it keeps telling me that I have to login to access the login page (They made it act like a retard).
If I can find this again once I can sign in, I'll leave you a signed review.
