Relic
I love poems about the sea and sailing ships. This one is exceptionally good. I could see everything about this broken, beached ship. Great imagery, and flawless meter and rhyme.

    Oh thank you very much for reviewing my poem! Most members would not review for just 2 cents and I appreciate if very much. Relic is one of my personal favorites. I'm not in FS much right now but I plan to be move active in the fall.
    All the best,
    Rodger

Morning Mist
What a very beautiful and well-written poem. I read it a couple times, slowly and thoughtfully, just to let it all sink in. You have a wonderful talent. Thank you for sharing this poem on such a sobering topic.

    Hi Gracie, Than you for your wonderful compliments and six star rating. It's difficult for me to understand why we can't seem to protect our school children or how many lives these senseless shootings change forever. I appreciate your review, especially when it only paid two cents!
    All the best,
    Warren

The Little Boy
This boy sure did a lot of wonderful things. The lines rhymes and are perfect. Nice work. This poem feels like a story about a boy. I think. Thanks for sharing. Good luck in the contest!

    Hello Raul1
    Thank you very much for you kind comments and five stars. The poem is about an old man and the little boy who lives inside every man, reminiscing about his childhood as he walks through a shop selling items from when he was a child. I'm very glad you enjoyed my poem.
    All the best,
    Rodger

September's Song
I was just looking at poems to read, so I don't know if I read this before.
September makes your mind think about indoors which can be hard if you lost a love one.
It is very nicely written.
It seems like this took a lot of work to put together.
Congratulations on all your awards.

    Thank you very much for your kind words and five star rating. I appreciate your reviewing a poem that only paid 2 cents. How quickly they lose their value at FS!

Fragile Film
What a wonderfully well written poem (you must already know that). It really hit home as more and more I find myself looking back on younger years. Thank you for sharing this beautiful poem that I certainly had to read more than once. Enjoy your evening.

    Hi Gracie, Thank you for your kind words in reviewing my poem. I'm glad you could connect to it. I often find myself wishing the world was simpler and slower place like when I was a kid. I'm sorry that my reply to you a few weeks late but I can't find much time to write and review at the moment,
    All the best, Rodger

September's Song
What a lovely tribute to your wife and the life she lived before you. How true your thoughts and the flow of the words expressed shewing forth her tenderness. My first cousin whom I adored the summer months growing up on the farm about the same age from breast cancer. Your selection made a special connection to my memory of her. A gentle creature. Thanks for the memory and the lesson I learned on your type of poetry used

reply by the author on 16-Jan-2018
    Hello again and thank you for another thoughtful five star review. I'm saddened to read about your cousin's battle with breast cancer. I am encouraged by the statistical drop in cancer deaths but numbers cannot tell of the personal losses we feel for our loved ones. All of those beautiful hearts and souls gone too soon. I like to try different forms but usually stay away from the short ones.
    All the best, Rodger

Such a beautiful tribute. There are very few works here but I read just for the pleasure - here I think I should put "Pleasure" as it stands. Thank you for the chance to read your words!

This is a beautiful poem. It paints a clear and lovely picture in the mind while following the structure as intended.
Well done.
And the picture is equally beautiful.

The Old Bicycle
Hello Warren. Thank you for painting such a touching scene that embraces the power of reminiscing. I am new to the site (joined today) and look forward to learning so much about the power of words, transformed into so many genres. I will particularly enjoy re-reading, and most of all very much appreciate your overview of the technique you have used, and in this case modified. My best. Diane

    Hello Diane, It's nice and have you as a fan! Thank you for all of your kind comments and compliments. I love writing poetry and when I receive a review like the two you wrote for me, it's uplifting and I appreciate it very much. I have to credit FS and the wonderful writers and instructors that once were here. Don't get me wrong, there are still some gifted writers here but not as many as before. I had three classes with Brooke Baldwin (adewpearl) and I credit her for making me a better poet. This poem is one of my personal favorites Thank for bookcasing it too.
    All the best,
    Rodger

Another Soldier Died Today
First, congratulations on another win with your nonet--you're on a roll--keep it going! Thank you for your tribute to the fallen in this set of rhymed quatrains. Your contrast between the speaker's point of view and the soldier's experience is very effective. Well done- Joan

    Thank you, Joan. I appreciate your kind congrats for winning the Nonet contest. Another Soldier is one of my favorites and I appreciate your wonderful review! I wrote it when my son was stationed in Iraq (US Air Force) and I realized how detached we in the U.S. are from the conflicts our children are sent to fight. Thanks again!
    All the best, Rodger

    Thank you the additional context and your reminder to be more engaged. Sighs- Joan
