Reviews for Desperate Symphony
Marsha Mellow chapter 1 . 4/27/2006
Great poem! It shows a lot of emotion and I can just imagine that person talking. It's like a poetic story. Very well done!

Had a few strange lines:"Strike the drums…Beat them fast."

However, nice parallells with the symphony to life I guess.

Really grand way to end.

it's a beautiful poem and a beautiful idea- it renders an epic in my mind. I'm going to try to favorite it if I have not used all spots already.

This, by far, is my favorite poem of yours. Interesting metaphor you drew- I could never think of that. So good. I hope to see more from you.

how sweet. I liked it. I play viola, piano, violin and guitar and so reading about the different instruments was interesting. It was a little long, I think you could have accomplished the same feat in less lines, but that's really just a writing beginning seemed to drag on a little but you made up for it towards the end. I liked the ending part about her singing. I liked it.

"look at these hands / aren't they soft? / they weren't meant for labor, / or for fighting others off./ yet they fight desperate enough, / fighting against this love..."
i love it. especially the beginning - just the voice, emotions, and the word choice...depicting a polite pain.
random, i know, but it reminds me of the conductor in the phantom tollbooth. the conductor that, with his music, brought up the sun and everything that happened in the world.
