  • POEM: Mental Revolution by Akhtar Jawad (3/1/2015 11:36:00 PM)

    PH has been helping me tonight to LOSE comments before i get them submitted! ! ! i need to be really careful to save them somewhere 'safe' before they are lost. it has happened about 3 times tonight while i've been asked to change the verification code.

    now i'm too tired to try to reconstruct the comment as it was, which included some info i learned online about who Tipu was. (killed by british in 1799) (well, specifically killed by a greedy soldier, after Tipu had been wounded)

    yes, i do believe that there are factors, not strictly based on religion, which cause fighting among nations, sects, and tribes. i have no faith that mankind will succeed in wiping out poverty, prejudice, illness, etc. worldwide. it is
    too much to expect of mankind!

    i was puzzled by the use of the words base and perpendicular. care to try explaining to me? bri :) :)

  • POEM: Mera Gumnam Mahboob by Akhtar Jawad (3/1/2015 11:04:00 PM)

    well, i COULD read some of this! door, Jane, rat, and hay

    well done, i suppose! and you chose a good author to translate. thanks for sharing. :) bri

  • POEM: I Broke My Leg by M.J. Lemon (3/1/2015 10:54:00 PM)

    i found one i really like here. not having ever broken my leg, i cannot vouch for what you say, but you say it nicely. the speaking body parts and related equipment are a nice touch.

    i had to find a definition of reprove and i'm glad i did. could you have just made up this story? you could have. :) bri
    to MyPoemList it goes.

    can anyone tell me (please) how to find a poem (i know its name and author's name) which has been submitted to the contest now in progress
    on poemhunter, WITHOUT having to click through scores (hundreds?) of poem titles looking for it? i do not plan to enter a poem myself, but i've
    been asked to look at and vote on a friend's poem. THANKS. bri :)
    p.s. i found the poem once after minutes of clicking, but i accidentally clicked it away and could not figure out a way to go back to it.

    Aditya, i really enjoyed the story and how you described the woman/girl. and suddenly she was gone! that is too bad if it really happened to you, but i liked the way you quickly changed the story from " glad" to " sad" . i do have some suggestions concerning your English, which overall i found to be excellent.
    line 2: " clam" i'm sure is meant to be " calm"
    line 7: dropp the word " the" . it's not needed.
    line 10: change it to " Stilled the world for a while."
    line 19: try " I now stand amid (or amidst) the crowded place."
    from Bri Edwards .......nice job ......8 or 9 out of ten, if you make my suggested changes
