Reviews for Poem for a Graveyard
glimpses from an ivory tower chapter 1 . 10/30/2007
Yes, Anna, my dear, I am back.

After doing some nifty calculations, I discovered that you had reviewed 29% of what I have posted, while I have reviewed only 20% of your work. To balance this, I will review two pieces (including this one). If you want more, you must review more...and if I hear another excuse about you being an awful reviewer, I will whack you with my heavy physics book in religion class.

Now, onto the actual review...

Fantabulous imagery: half-hung moon, hollow-backed, effervescence streaming, did I mention half-hung moon? That last one was a particularly fresh, biting image...where do you come up with these?

Interesting structure: When you read it aloud, it sounds like it would be delivered crying, the words broken up by huge sobs and gasps. It's a peaceful benediction, but the way you've divided it, it seems the deliverer would be wracked with misery.

Mourning, perhaps?

Only one tiny spelling error (which another reviewer pointed out) and I quite like it.

I really do enjoy your writing...every one that I've read so far...

But I will only comment on this one!

Good job, and keep it up!

The line breaks fall at inappropriate times, but the words are lovely. In the last sentence, take out the apostrophe. "It's" means "it is." "Its" shows posession.
