Thank you for reading this poem! I'm so glad you liked it, it was the first LOTR piece I wrote and submitted and I'm sort of fond of it (and like it better than my sonnet, really - must be a hobbit thing, lol) Thank you for the lovely review, I really appreciate it! ~Gina :)
It does sound like something Bilbo could have written. It's the simple, honest poetry of Hobbit-folk. Well done!
Oh, thank you so much! That's a lovely compliment to be compared to Bilbo - the best I could hope for. :) Thank you for reading this poem and for leaving such a nice review! ~Gina :)
Im not good with poetry so my reviews arn't either but I liked this. It told a story all its own, which Im sure was the intent. For someone like me (who rarly understands poetry) it is a great accomplishment for it to come across the way you intended, as a stand alone piece. Good job.
Thanks, Kristy! I'm glad you liked it. I really appreciate you reading it and leaving such a nice note! See you around the forums! ~Gina :)
I love your word choice throughout the entire poem. I think I love the part, "Their voices silent, shall not cry/ For lands now lost and days gone by." Wonderful job! :)
Thank you so much! I'm so glad you read this poem and enjoyed it. I'm actually working on another but I'm sort of stuck on one last rhyming couplet so we'll see. Thanks so much for the review, I really appreciate it! ~Gina :)
Lovely job, Gina. You've captured such a vivid picture of the Elves leaving - and I don't just mean the physical leaving of a place. The angst, the stress and the worry that accompany such a difficult time is present in every line.
Thank you, Julie! I don't know if it's quite that good - like I said in my notes, I thought something about the Elves would be a bit more epic, but this seems more hobbit-ish. Thank you so much for looking at it beforehand, and for stopping to leave such a nice review! ~Gina :)
