Reviews For Love Poem
The simplicity of this poem makes it all the sweeter - I especially love the last line of each verse.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for commenting on this! I am thrilled you read it and like it. (Sorry for the delay in responding, I somehow missed your comment until now.)
These are elegant and have a direct almost Spartan quality as fitting a pair of warrior-scholar-princes. They are exactly the kind of vows I would expect Findekáno and Maitimo to speak to one another. Both sets of verses are great, but I really, really liked Findekáno's words!
Nope, no cause for personal embarrassment here.
What do you mean - "almost canon?" In my book, your M & F embody canon. ;^)
Author's Response: Thanks you so much. I am utterly delighted with your characterization of "a pair of warrior-scholar-princes." (Oh, you know me and these characters so well!) I've been wondering for a while about Findekáno and why he is always so much clearer since I started writing this series because I was so in love with the idea of Fëanor’s eldest son. And it finally just hit me writing my epilogue (I am slow) and it is because Maitimo is wounded and Findekáno is whole.
I am looking forward to seeing you post your own recent effort at poetry. It is so much more ambitious than mine and has a larger theme.
Ah - the more I look at this, the more complex it is! I will come to this many times I think...
Very well done, indeed.
Author's Response: Woohoo! Thank you. I always think a poem is a bit like a joke: if you have to explain it, it's not any good. I was hoping someone would notice there was some form and content there. (OK. Now if I just could have worked in a little imagery, I would have been better pleased. But, hey, it's been 20 years since I tried to write a poem.)
Touching. Classy. Beautiful. Thank you for sharing :)
Author's Response: Robinka, thank you so very much. It was so hard to submit a poem. I am absolutely delighted that you think it worked.
That's somehow awfully poignant. Small is beautiful sometimes. * Sniff *
Author's Response: Thank you, Fanari. You are too kind to me. I am so very pleased it moved you. (As I'm sure you know, they always give me a sniffle when I think of their love and loss.)
