Author's Response: Why, thank you! Thanks for the review!
Alright - I understand the second poem is a sonnet, but what is the first (except for the couplets)? It must be free verse. :)
I love, love love this:
I do not know, so do not ask,
in my ignorance, my sweet, blissful ignorance,
Because it's places after the repition of similar couplets, it has so much effect. And your sonnet really conveys the desperation of the writer. The measurements are great too, because you use so many - cup, inch, pinch.
A nitpick: 'tkaing' should be 'taking.' ;)
Very well written.
Author's Response: Well...it was kind of a sonnet, with a couplet in between the quatrains. *rolls eyes* oh, Jenn. The ever perfectionistic professor. ^-^
