    Beautiful poem full of love and Hope. We must believe in goodness. See joy and beauty in world otherwise we will be the victim of our own despair and sadness. (Report) Reply

    Is 'loving the subject, the meter, and the rhythm' the criteria for a good poem? Do wisdom and hope (highly subjective) suffice? Or does uplifting with 'rythm' (sic) fulfill the criteria? Perhaps a broad and free heart will prevail despite a lack of poetic skills? I just don't know, but I have a hunch that some on this site think so!

    After all is said and done, he said with a sly grin, you pays your money, doncha? (Report) Reply

    Opinion of a broad and free heart prevails over the world despite drawbacks! The outspoken ideas reflects true poetic spirit which is lacking in many of the kind the poetry world! This is the nature of a true poet I admire! (Report) Reply

    This is a positive poem which would make a good ballad if it were put to music. It is an uplifting poem with a strong rythm and message. (Report) Reply

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
