Rhyming poetry is really hard to write, but you did a fantastic job of it. This is truely beautiful.

Awwwwwwwwww! Super good! AWESOME! :D

Absolutely perfect, and I don't even like poetry. I remember being really upset about the ending of this series, and I feel like this made it a lot better.
Thanks for writing this!

I really liked this-I almost never read poetry, but this was...good. I often felt like the rhythm was off (though maybe that's just me), but it was *on* more often, and it just felt...complete.

That is a straight up fantastic title.

I've never read this trilogy, but I read this poem because I love you unconditionally, and I am quite literally thrown to the floor.
It's...it's the imagery. And the words. And the strife. And the last gasp of glory, the fighting chance, the acceptance of death, the blazing martyrdom, and god, it's the everything that you've put down right here for the world to read.
"And he stands half-shadowed, as if he always knew."
That image was sketched into my head so clearly that I could have reached out to it.
You're a storyteller through and through.

I can see some of this being put to music and sung. Nice, rhyming, lyrical ... Exactly the kind of poem I like. :)
Especially liked these parts:
"He has freed his friend, he has left his love,
The ceiling of glass is sparkling above.
It is his first last stand and his heart is still
He raises the staff and breaks the seal."-Oooooh, got goosebumps.
"The days fade by and the city's stopped burning,
The sun keeps rising, the world keeps turning,
The empire rises from its knees
And she can feel the agony
Of a dying era pulsing through,
Bartimaeus' words all coming true.
She stands alone with her hand on her breast
And she lays her past and heart to rest."-This is an especially lyrical part, and, again, gave me shivers.
"His hair his neat and his hands are clean,"-Is neat?
"Dancing though London in a hideous light."-Through London.
Thanks for writing! I haven't read PG in quite a while but this makes me want to go back for a re-read. :)

This is...incredible. Just incredible. The poem is perfect, the people are perfect, the imagery is perfect...
You know, you should e-mail this to Johnathan Stroud. I think he would approve.
I certainly do.

You good. You nearly made me cry when I never cry.
| DistanceBetween chapter 1 . 4/28/2010
That was so beautiful; i loved it. Great work!
| redchinese chapter 1 . 4/19/2010
great poetry- sets my green little voice of envy a fire XD
| AyanneCZ chapter 1 . 4/15/2010
Oh god, this is so beautiful I had to read it three times. You should really write more poetry from now on, you're so good at it! I usually dislike poetry (I mean amateurish fanfictional poetry!), because it hardly ever seems right and don't bother reading it ;D but thanks Jashin-sama I didn't look what genre it was beforehand :))
This is awesome, simply awesome 3

Wow, it's been a long time since I thought about this series. I don't usually like fanfiction poetry, but this is good. The rhyme scheme and rhythm gives it a classical feel that I think is fitting, although it does seem a little bouncy at times. I have to say, though, I just love the line "Not a fan of heroics, but what the hell." Unless I'm misremembering hideously, that screams Bartimaeus in five-foot letters. That and "The world keeps turning"; I think it really captures the feel of things after something collapses like this.

This is so have a wonderful flow that is hard to capture and I've found in few others.I hope to see more from writing.
