I am currently writing poetry, something I have enjoyed reading for a long time. I am ideally looking for some constructive feedback on my work which would be a big help.


A Song Of Shadows I knew one once, who wanted to believe in something, and to bless it with the breath with which he played his pipe, and made it weave songs of youth and friendship, love and death. And then he sang of wonders near and far, of sights sublime, on mountains, sea and sky, sunsets, lightning, or a falling star - and sighed, though he knew not the reason why. He sought for something more, beyond this world of shadows pale, but peered in an abyss of doubt – and wished that he again was curled in warming raiment of unknowing bliss. The Moonlight Hours We'll no more pass the moonlight hours by the riverside, or share a silence as we stroll beneath the colonnade. Or shelter take from sudden showers, or watch the settling tide, or lie still when we moments stole in some forgotten shade. Those tender days, of light and shade - the fading summer stole, and so we'll no more pass the moonlight hours by the riverside.

As I've mentioned on your poems, I had forgotten how much I enjoy a traditional voice in poetry.
You're now on my list of favourites WOL writers.
