I really liked this...rhythm and rhyme really drives the verses on:-)

These are brilliant! I'm surprised there aren't more rewiews. I love that you use many forms of poetry. Well done.

I loved this!

A very nice tribute.
I was uncertain about the rhythm you use here. The first stanzas flow well, though I keep wanting to give stress to odd syllables, but especially the last was a bit more halting. I am not sure if you aimed for a specific rhythm-sceme, but it is close enough that I feel the difference.

Get ready for The Hobbit- this december!

LOL so very true!

I've been neglecting these, sorry about that.
You do poetry very well, it is a pleasure to read them, and this hobbit-limerick nailed it pretty well.

This is lovely.

I am not sure if I have commented on this elsewhere, but I found this poem both touching, and very inspiring. I want to sing it, which I think is a good thing for a lullaby.
I might just send you another recoding one day, if you will permit ;)

This is a moving look at poor Halbarad's doom.

This is just lovely.

This is really nice; I think the form you chose is very well suited to the subject. And of course I like the one about Alqualondë as well, because, you know, sonnets.
Since it worked last time: Anything alliterative is always appreciated!
| Ocean's Nocturne of the COCA chapter 13 . 4/16/2012
This format is amazing! It's perfect for the theme of Mandos/death: very cyclical and sounding quite cryptic. :) I love it!

I like these. You should definitely keep experimenting with different poetic forms. I'm impressed by the acrostic one, because those almost always come across as sort of childish to me, but this one didn't. Might have been the nice rhyming scheme. And of course this first chapter is just lovely. I'm such a sucker for sonnets. Any chance of a non-Shakespearean one?
