Clever! I have to admit to have never read the other If but this If was fantastic! I like the "changing repetition"- "I wouldn't be I/ You wouldn't be you/ We wouldn't be we" It adds a lot fo the poem's general rythym. Some of the rhyming was off and that threw off the general rhythm a lot, but other than that, I had a lot of fun reading it! This definitely deserved an honorable mention- or higher!

Author's Response: Thanks! I loved e.e. cumming's original poem, and it shouted for me to parody it. I know I need to revise the rhyme; it's my weakest point in writing poetry. Thanks again for the review. ~ Teresa

Wow - I never thought of Harry and Ginny's relationship that way! Very interesting. *reads again*

I know you based this off of e.e. cummings, but I still think you did amazingly well. a) You had to rhyme. I cannot rhyme to save my life. b) You kept the rhythm strong. (Okay, that made no sense.) c) You brought a powerful image/feeling/etc. to the reader's mind, i.e. me. So great job!


Author's Response: Thanks! I tried to make it sound as close to e.e. cumming's poem as I could. Also, your poetry is amazing. I have read it so many times. ~ Teresa

What a wonderful job! I really loved this poem. e.e.cummings is amazing, and you picked the perfect poem to parallel! Great job, and congratulations for the honourable mention - you truly deserve it. :D

Author's Response: Thanks! I didn't know I had placed until I read this review. You have made my day!
