Things to comment on when reviewing poetry
I was challenged by "WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group to create a crossword related to the group somehow, so this crossword incorporates a variety of the things that I look for when doing poetry reviews.
Across:
 2 Figurative language sometimes suggests that trees are dancing in the wind, or similar. Did this poet use such devices?
 5 Does the poem meander along or sprint?
 6 Many poems use alliteration or rhyme to add to the flow. How did you feel these repeating sounds worked?
 7 Make sure your review is more positive than negative. Sandwich a negative between two positives.
 8 Don't be afraid to say how you personally felt, as a reader.
 9 Was there a deeper reason the dress was red, or the weather was stormy?
 14 What was your favourite part of the poem?
 15 Is it smooth or does it feel choppy?
Down:
 1 Does the structure of the poem adhere to the requirements?
 2 With poetic licence, not all poets use correct grammar.
 3 In your opinion, could the poem be improved at all?
 4 Does it feel like the poet has forced words into a sentence to meet rhyme or syllable requirements?
 10 What is the tone of the poem? Is it dark? Comical?
 11 On the whole, what did you think about the poem? Make sure your rating matches.
 12 From your interpretation, what is the poem about?
 13 Is it creative licence, or is it a typo?
