Reviews for An Old Quill

HOW HAVE I NOT READ THIS YET? I think I might be in love with this poem... it's so beautiful in such a universal way. It presents a simple idea and makes it immense and layered. I love the idea of being a quill, that's so brilliant!

One thing: the line "A soldier marching lonely home" I feel like the order could be tweaked for better understanding, though I love the way it sounds as it is. But maybe "A soldier, lonely, marching home" would work too... I dunno, it's your amazingly wonderful poem. *smiles* *hugs* love you!

I love your imagery! The descriptive language in this poem was simply sublime.

Nice work,

"Seasoned scribe and stately page,

a sailing ship on mystic waters, rolling

with the gentle lap of water,

mist around the masts, so tall and regal,

soft and faded into graying purple sky."

I seriously love this poem, that stanza especially. Amazing use of language and imagery. On my favourites!

This is quite pretty. The rhythm and word choice are very nice, and I liked how there is only an occasional rhyme. The poem has kind of musical quality to it, I think. Nicely done.
