Reviews for The Big Oak Tree
gargeera chapter 1 . 5/5/2005
associating seasons with moods and states ... i like that!i once had 2 write a paper on seasons nd their relation with the events in a french book... it sure stirs ur thoughts more and deeply captures you in the feeling the author is experiencing.. the poem is sad and moving though...i have my oak tree's somewhere in heliopolis... u reminded me ... i wana go nd retrieve those sweet memories too..thnks for reminding me of the beauty of a moment...

Very well structured, almost-great rhyming. It's just that damned vocabulary. You need to get a thesaurus, look up all the words you have to use repeditively and... use different ones. But, bravo, this is a great one.

Wonderfully sad. Especially the last bit. I like the imagry. Comparing the before and afters. I'd love to see a more structured rhyme from this.

Ack! That was an unexpected end! I liked it, though. Even though it did give me 'A Separate Peace' flashbacks...
