Dear Lakeside9,

I found your poem in the “Read a Newbie” section at WDC. First, let me extend to you a warm welcome. This is a wonderful site in which to showcase your work, and to garner feedback.

I see that this piece was written about 24 years ago. I thought it to be a good example of free verse style. It has a good flow. Your word choice paints a good picture in the reader’s mind. Laughter is a beautiful sound, but sometimes elusive.

Thank you for sharing your talent! I look forward to reading more from you!

Regards,

Nani

Review of All the Time

Zeke,

I love this! I think it’s simplicity and repetition make it a wonderful read. Your faith shines through each stanza! Our God is truly good all the time, and we should praise his magnificent name continually. This piece is a praise for Him, and it has stuck into my head. I will be repeating parts of it all day! LOL!

Great job...

Dear donna,

I found your poem while browsing the Read and Review section here at Writing.com I have to admit, the title drew me in! I think we would all wonder what we would do presented with that dilemma.

I think your free-verse style flowed good. It certainly conveyed your choices of what to do with the time left! I see it was written for a contest. That can be a challenge! I hope you did well.

Thank you for sharing with us at WDC.

Review of Melancholy

Dear Wiishkobi Ode,

I found your poem while browsing the Read a Newbie section here on Writing.com. I thought the title interesting, but upon closer look, the form was what intrigued me! You have made me aware of another form of Japanese poetry. Thank you, for sharing this lesson!

I thought it flowed smoothly, telling a sad tale of someone deeply disconsolate. Good word choice to depict the life of your subject.

Thank you for sharing your work, and, welcome to WDC!

Dear Randy,

I came across your poem while browsing the Read a Newbie section of Writing.com. The title piqued my interest, so, I found I had to read and review it.

It appears that you are writing from the heart, about an incident that you experienced. If so, it is a sad tribute to your friend. I have found that people who share the same lifestyles as your late Mr. Brown, often do not listen to the voice of reason. They are hell-bent and headstrong to race down the pathfinder destruction they are on.

Your short free-verse piece tells a powerful story in a concise way. Your word choice is good and lends to your telling of the tale. Good job!

Thank you for sharing your work, and, welcome to WDC!

Dear Princess,

This is a lovely free verse poem about a love story! Not just the ordinary traditional love story, but one that encompasses a love for a people, a way of life and ancestors, as well.

Your words paint a lovely picture oh Rose Petal and her chosen one

You are correct! The Cherokee are a noble people.

Thank you for sharing!

Dear goldenbear,

I found your piece when browsing through the Read and Review section here at Writing.com.

Your word choices paint a sad picture of sorrow. I think your descriptive language is spot-on in this concise work.

Please check the usage of others rather ”other’s”. This is the only part that might need tweaking. I don’t mean this as criticism, but as a means to improve your prose.

Thank you for sharing.

I found your poem while browsing the Read and Review section of WDC. I must admit I found the title intriguing!

Your form was interesting and led the reader along easily down a light-hearted path revealed in the end. I guess we are always looking for another way to prepare the American delicacy Spam!

Hello! I am reviewing your piece for the Simply Positive Review Group. I am a member here on WDC, much like you. I am certainly not an expert at reviewing. I hope that you will find this review helpful. It is not my intention to criticize your work, but rather to make helpful suggestions that you can either choose to use or discard. Remember that the opinions that I express are mine, as a reader on this site. I am certainly not an authority on reviewing, but I do enjoy reading!

Overall Impression: I think this is a lovely piece telling of a romance that is growing and maturing. It is noted how much you care for her and appreciate the person that she is. You have expressed your feelings quite well. Isn't that what writing is all about? Good job!

Suggestions: None that would serve to improve your work.

Please allow me to encourage you to continue to write and enjoy all that WDC has to offer!
