Hi Kiwi,

Congrats on the contest win!

This is a beautiful poem and very well written!

It is beyond worthy of a 6-star, but I am sorry to say I don't have any to award.

Thank you for sharing!

Jan

Congratulations of placing 2nd in the contest.
This deserved a 1st place. It is so beautiful and heartfelt.
I love how you use enjambment so expertly for a smooth
flow. The images are lovely and contribute to the
loving tone of the poem.
Sorry I missed it earlier, but glad I caught up with the winners.
Nancy

It sounds like a serene and romantic place to begin a strong and abiding love relationship. It is always good to see love and beauty in the eyes of your spouse, It probably is a reflection of what she receives.
Congrats on placing second in the contest.
Keep writing

Joan

I was glad to see that your love poem was well received in the contest. I admired your use of the questions and personification in your rhymed quatrains. Cheers- Joan

First, congratulations for placing second in the love poem poetry contest. (I think there should be a ribbon placed on the poem marking that achievement) and second, I'd like to say this is absolutely beautiful. I adored how you used the river as a metaphor carrying the theme from first verse to last, wrapping the love details around that beautiful scene. Your use of language is exceptional and the music of the poem sings like nature's music. I think this is a truly amazing poem and I am not at all surprised it was honored by the committee. Simply an amazing work. MM

Very nice, Stevie. Brought back nostalgic old memories of being young and in love. "Life, Love and Other Disasters." I like the title. I wish you luck in the contest. It's the best one I've read.

But still within your eyes I find
the beauty that I came to know
when we first lay beneath the trees,
beside the river, long ago.

Beautiful picture very romantic poem. Loved the rhyming and while reading it, I felt a beautiful flow of words and phrases. Should be the winner. The exquisite love story.Terry xoxo

This is lovely! The imagery is vivid and the words flowed smoothly like the stream. Though dreams bandied belong to the past, the beauty in her eyes will always last. Should do well in the contest.

The words flow gently and beautifully in this write reminiscent of love of years past. I feel the emotions and nostalgia but there is no feeling of regret, rather a sense of seasons in human life that come and go.

    Thanks so much for the kind words - indeed there is no regret here, just a growing and changing love.
