Chapter: James' Poem

Oo, that gave me goosebumps. Lovely. This -->

Her wand made of willow - her robes, deepest black,
Her heart a possession of which I do lack.

Was my fave part. That was so sweet, almost bitter-sweet in a way. Jame's character really came through. Loved it

Chapter: James' Poem

Absolutely adorable. The rhythm and flow were consistent but not repeating, which is always refreshing to read in poetry. I also think James' was characterized quite well, even though characterization doesn't have much of a chance to come through in poetry (ideas, thoughts, memories, but not really characterization).

A few suggestions:

Her wand made of willow - her robes, deepest black,

Instead of the dash, I think I semi colon would work much better here. The dash implies the second sentence is elaborating on the first, but, as it's not, the longer pause isn't really necessary. The semi colon would separate the two without completely separating them--as they're both about possessions--and it flows much better.

And here:

For she does not love me,
No she does not care,

The second line is really troubling, mainly because I can't describe in terms of meter why it reads awkwardly (I barely understand the mechanics myself). In layman's, the second line is comprised of shorter syllables than are punchy, making the line read quicker, but it's in a stanza with stressed syllables. So maybe rephrasing? (If you understand that at all-- I barely do >.>)

Other than those nitpicks, this was an adorable poem. :)

I like this one also. We don't really know anything about the Fat Friar, and it is really interesting how you made him a little real. :) Thanks for some input into this ghostie we know so little about! Cyns
