Reviews for Ophelia

You say you're not a poet. You are clearly a liar.

The flow and meter of the poem is brilliant. It's smooth, seems natural and wonderful (wow, I just made your poem sound like yoghurt...), and the conclusion ties it all together fantastically.

I loved the comparison and the flow of the words. It's lyrical.

If you weren't a poet I couldn't have stood to read it. I'm very picky. I can call myself a songwriter though I've only written one good song.

I really like the concepts and the flow of sounds is also beautiful.

That was very good. Wonderful comparisons between River and Ophelia :)
Talyn chapter 1 . 4/24/2006
I love this poem! It's very clever, and I like the Shakespeare allusions. Also, the meter is very lyrical in a "folk-song" sort of way, so that I found myself making a tune to it as I read. Great work!

Lirazel chapter 1 . 4/22/2006
Oh. I like that. Such an interesting, believable comparison. I never would have thought of all the similarities, but they are obviously there. And I loved the lost stanza, especially the last two lines. Interesting.

Yeah, sure, you're not a poet and I'm not insane...

This gave me chills woman, honest to Bob, chills, it was so well done. I wish I quote the whole thing in here but I'll refrain to merely squeeing over the loveliness of the last stanza.

Could you may let me know when you post more poetry?

This is beautiful.
