  • POEM: Voir by charles hariyadi leonhart (4/30/2006 11:58:00 PM)

    So, you're new to poetry. The very best thing you can do right now is to read every single poem you can get your hands on, then read them again, and again, and again. After that, start writing again.

    My one tip for this poem: kill the ellipses'. Please.

  • POEM: The Lost by Ryan Mattock (3/13/2006 3:04:00 PM)

    I saw your post in one of the forums here at poemhunter, and figured I'd take a look.

    Whose poetry are you reading? Above all else, it's important to read as much poetry as you can get your hands on, in every stage of your poetic development. If you can get ahold of it, I'd strongly suggest a copy of '20th Century Poetry and Poetics'; it's a great anthology, one of the first I really studied from cover to cover, and still my favourite.

    One last thing - have you considered workshopping your poetry? A critical forum is great for improving your poetry - I know I'd be lost without them :) . My favourite is at

    Keep writing!


  • POEM: Ah Love by Ronberge (anno primo) (10/1/2005 12:39:00 AM)

    ...let's count, shall we?

    Cliches: 4. (Strophes: 5)
    Images: 0.

    Not to mention that the ENTIRE POEM is abstract. In short: bad poem.
