  • How is the illiad by Homer a poem?

    Best answer: Because it is a piece of writing in which the expression of feelings and ideas is given intensity by particular attention to diction (sometimes involving rhyme), rhythm, and imagery.

    Just to check - you realise it wasn't originally written in English; so a lot of the rhyme and cadence is lost?

  • Would you please cc this poem on the spirit of the tree?

    Beyond the street, a tree once stood, Majestic, tall and dignified; She was murdered for her wood, For man's greed, she suffered died. The ground on which she stood was scarred, a broken, open wound that gaped; Soon covered, paved and darkly tarred, No sign of what was murdered, raped. Yet, every time I... show more
    Beyond the street, a tree once stood, Majestic, tall and dignified; She was murdered for her wood, For man's greed, she suffered died. The ground on which she stood was scarred, a broken, open wound that gaped; Soon covered, paved and darkly tarred, No sign of what was murdered, raped. Yet, every time I chance to pass, on silent evening walks alone, the heady scent of tree and grass rise from the dusty, paved cold stone. And leafy rustlings from the past whisper that the tree will last...

    No matter what I do, I just can't understand poetry, and I have to write a sonnet. I know it's ababcdcdefefgg and 14 lines and such, but I still don't get how to write it. Is there some secret to writing sonnets?

  • What do you think my poem means?

    I’m trying to be- that But I don’t know- How does the fire know When to stop burning We light the fire- we don’t put it out the Air is full of buckets of water it seems but there aren’t any buckets for me-

  • How do i write poems that are open to interpretation?Are my type of poems bad?

    Best answer: His opinion is not the only opinion, and should not be the only opinion that matters! So what if he has a poor opinion? Let your poems be what they are and let them go. Better yet, find ways to make them known. Write them down on greeting cards -- aren't those poems supposed to be clear about their message?... show more
    Best answer: His opinion is not the only opinion, and should not be the only opinion that matters! So what if he has a poor opinion? Let your poems be what they are and let them go. Better yet, find ways to make them known. Write them down on greeting cards -- aren't those poems supposed to be clear about their message? Some poems are like the limerick jokes and are very specific about their meanings. Some poems are messages of love and are meant to be specific, like song lyrics! I do not think this person whose opinion you seek really knows enough about poetry and writing to be a judge of your work. If he does not like it, that is his prerogative. But as for him being the final judge, No, he should not be the final say. Keep writing and share online in your social media and perhaps take pictures to go along with your poems and set up your own following minus the one poor opinion and good luck to you!

  • Could you please give me a bit of feedback on my "Haystack" poem?

    Haystack Laying on your back, chewing on a stick of straw. Checkered shirt, pony tail, cutest country girl, that I ever saw. Scented fresh air, your rose water perfume. Lavender in the fields, purple in full bloom. Sunshine sparkling, highlights that golden hair. I'm climbing this haystack with a milkshake... show more

  • What is a good poem for family members who can't attend my wedding for different reasons?

    Best answer: It saddens me that you cannot attend the day
    When bells ring out for my proud wedding
    Affording us a time to gather once again
    Before the bells ring for our passing

  • Is this cheating and plagiarism?

    Best answer: No, it isn't. Its "inspiration".

    Plagarism is when you literally copy a work word for word, and try to pass it for your own.

  • Is it plagiarism if a line from another poem is written in yours?

    Best answer: Brief quotes are used all the time. This isn't plagiarism, just a nod to the original poet.
