Reviews For "Zimraphel" and "I who loved her"
This is the first poem of yours I've read I think! (Not that I know how many you've written.)
The last two stanzas affected me emotionally (I actually thought of Rogue One while I was reading them). I think you effectively illustrated how small we all are but also how we each can leave our mark on the world.
I think I don't read poetry enough - this was lovely and I enjoyed it very much. :)
Thank you! I don't write much poetry; it's not a form that naturally inspires me (especially fan poems). But this grew naturally out of Noliel's piece.
Thanks again for reading and commenting! <3
A great poem! I doubt you were going for a fixed metre in it, yet I felt with the right labour it could easily be done and brought to the plain of great verse; lots of variations between iambic and trochaic.
Thank you! :) You're right that I was going more with what sounded right in my head rather than going for a fixed meter. Honestly, I usually only use a traditional meter when working on a project for the medieval re-creation group I play with! Perhaps one day I'll gird my loins and tackle making this one pure iambic or pure trochaic. ;) Thanks again for reading and commenting!
Such a beautiful and heartbreaking poem. I can almost hear Pharazon saying it in his grief. I always wondered what went through his mind when he discovered what had become of Numenor or if he ever found out. I like the version of him and Zimraphel in PoME. It makes more sense. Noliel did a wonderful job on the illustration too. Zimraphel's horror and grief is captured with a great amount of accuracy. There is even beauty in her expression too.
First of all, regards to Noliel for the utterly gorgeous artwork! It's so sad and expressive.
And Dawn - wow, hat a beautiful poem! Sad, tragic, and even romantic in a sort of damaged sense. Nicely done. :)
A stunning poem that sent shivers down my spine when Miriel died with Pharaz˘n's full knowledge of the details.
Both the poem and the artwork are amazing. It's such a tragic tale, such a tragic ending... Thanks, both of you, for sharing this.
Sorry for the double comment - Dawn, the poem is just heart-wrenching, too. Marvelous job!
No worries--one for each of the coauthors. :) Thank you for reading and reviewing; when Noliel sent me her artwork, the poem pretty much wrote itself in a single sitting scribbled into my journal. She's created a powerful piece for sure! :)
Noliel, your artwork is absolutely stunning!
