What a beautiful, heartfelt, emotional and wonderful poem. I've had these same feelings recently and wish I could have expressed myself with such an extrardinary poem!

Excellent poetry and visual. I can't see any way that you could improve upon this Shakespearean sonnet. I could only improve by reading poetry of this quality.

I liked this short poem of yours, and I'm sure Michael would have been proud that you wrote it. I tried to find something you've written this year, but failed in my attempt. I like poems that rhyme and this one does that very well. It's good to have friends that remember us, even after death. I do think that a comma after the word mine in the last line would help though. As they say.... Write On! This attempt succeeded very well!!

I found this and love it, never had any kids, and got a job @ 14 ($1.10/hr). I thought I knew a lot more than I did though. I know I'll have to read more in your portfolio now. Great stuff.

My Rating:
*Star**Star**Star**Star**Star*

Title:
First Kiss

Title Impression:
The title expresses exactly what the sonnet is about, which is as good as it gets.

Spelling, Grammar, Punctuation:
I found no errors in spelling, grammar or punctuation - Very good.

Rhythm and Flow:
The rhythm and flow of the poem is excellent.

Word Choice:
I found the word choice very good and extremely interesting.

I couldn't even think of one suggestion to improve this very nice sonnet.

Overall Impression:
You conformed to the rules of a sonnet, in lines and syllables/line, and you wrote a very nice poem, although I wish that one time in my life - I would receive a first kiss that could do all those things to me, and create all those wild emotions!

Review of I MISS YOU MOM  
Review by LeBuert
Rated: E | (4.5)
Dear:

General Disclaimer:
My review is my opinion only, feel free to accept it or reject it as your heart desires.

My Rating:
*Star**Star**Star**Star**Halfstar*

Title:
I MISS YOU MOM

Title Impression:
The title tells it all, and the body of your work reveals to us, your emotions. Very Nice.

Spelling, Grammar, Punctuation:
Your spelling and grammar are great. I think if you placed punctuation at the end of some of the lines in the poem, we could better understand where to pause.

Rhythm and Flow:
I love both the rhythm and flow of this poem.

Word Choice:
The word choice is both quite nice and very interesting.

Suggestions:
The only suggestion is as I stated before. Sometimes the punctuation in a poem lets us pause and reflect on the preceding thought.

Overall Impression:
I love the emotion and thoughts you expressed in this poem. I lost my mother years ago, but still think of her often, and speak to her when appropriate. She was my champion.

It has been my pleasure to review your work - I hope you found the review helpful and encouraging.

Sincerely,


LeBuert

I try to view Janice48 Loves WDC, and can not read her poetry? I can not view her portfolio? I can not sign her guestbook? I've tried to rectify this but can't seem to do it? Can anyone here help?

I find these quite compelling. You might enjoy my little poem "If God Were a Cat" if you can find time in your busy schedule to view it?

Review of Wolf Hunt  
Review by LeBuert
Rated: E | (4.0)
Very nice poem. I liked the subject matter, the rhyming, the rhythm, the theme and think the title quite appropriate. I thought it was going to be about humans hunting wolves. A nice surprise awaited me though. I really like a poem with the thoughts of animals coming to life. You did this well. thank you for sharing this poem!

Review of Skipping Rope  
Review by LeBuert
Rated: E | (4.5)
I really liked this poem very much. I don't even know why anyone would say the format is wrong? I'm surely not a poetry X-spurt, critic, or even very knowledgeable about the topic. The format is the way something is arranged. This poem is arranged the way it is arranged. Unless you were submitting this as a sonnet or haiku or something that has a specific format - then I say the same thing you say - there is no such a thing as a format that this poem should fall into. Good writing and good luck in your future endeavors.

Review of Fly  
Review by LeBuert
Rated: E | (4.5)
Very nice. This is one of the better poems I've read in a while. I'm also of that age and have lived a full life, filled with great memories.

I hope this rating gets to you before you kick the bucket,

otherwise you can imagine the second line of the limerick.

Review of Bridges  
Review by LeBuert
Rated: 18+ | (4.0)
I liked this poem and its theme. It was quite different than I expected from the title though? I really liked someone's creeping near, somethings becoming clear, lines. I also liked the lip gloss, snake oil reference. This does happen quite often in reality. Good luck in all your future endeavors. Keep writing - you have a knack.

Review of The First Meeting  
Review by LeBuert
Rated: 13+ | (4.5)
I really like this poem - although I usually prefer ones that rhyme? The subject matter is compelling and overall I can't think of anything to improve it. I just can't give it a 5 - probably a flaw in my character? Good luck in your future endeavors!

I like the subject matter and I do like poetry that rhymes, pretty good poem in my estimation. I hated all the meetings before I retired. Good luck in your future endeavors! Keep writing.

Review of FIGURE IT OUT  
Review by LeBuert
Rated: 18+ | (2.5)
I just don't get it, how some people have the need to express themselves by using vulgarity. I think there are about 22 too many its in this poem. I don't understand how so many people could have rated this poem so highly? Fourteen people obviously think this is about the best poem they have read? Maybe it's the LOVE at the end? You have your right to write anything you desire, I guess? I really do think you could do better than this - given the time - and desire.

Review of Random Writing  
Review by LeBuert
Rated: E | (3.0)
I think one burst would have been enough. I like the emotion though, although this seems more of an essay than a poem to me. It is his loss, and I'm sure you'll raise them just fine with all the love you express. I wish you well in your future writings and other endeavors in life.

Review of Take It Away  
Review by LeBuert
Rated: E | (3.5)
I thought it is a pretty good poem, although I desagree with the premise that after death anything is left but a decomposing body. I believe you leave your body to rot and go on without it, but then what do I know? Keep writing and I wish you well in all your future endeavors. I do probably rate lower than most so please don't be offended.

Very nice poem, although I really don't like the subject matter. I do like poems that rhyme and are not filled with errors. Your punctuation might need a little improvement?

Review of Sticks and Stones  
Review by LeBuert
Rated: E | (4.0)
Oh, but the things that can hurt the most are words, especially if uttered by the ones we love! Always be careful what comes out your mouth, or your relationships may go south. The old adage although cute, is not true, when spoken by a brute. I think this is a very emotional poem spoken from the heart. If this situation is happening in your home - let a counselor you trust know. Verbal abuse is quite damaging to our precious hearts and minds. I do wish you well in all your endeavors. Keep writing and expressing yourself stronggurl - you have a knack for it!
