wow, i really liked this poem. the single words that broke up the stanzas really put an emphasis on the darkness and sadness of this scene (which was on of my faves in the book by the way). i also liked the quote syou had in there- they really ties the poem to the original text. great piece :]
Author's Response: Thank you for the lovely review! Yeah, I really liked this scene in the book, too - it was so powerful and sad. Once again - thank you!
Aww... this is a beautiful poem! I love this simile: "Dreading truth,/ our eyes meet/ with faces pale as/ the early morning/ sky." It paints a vivid picture for the reader. Early morning light is especially pure and wan, like the faces of those that love Harry. Great job!!! : )
Author's Response: Thank you!! *gives cookie to first reviewer* I'm really glad you liked that line - and I'm also really surprised, because I wrote it while having terrible writer's block! :) Thanks again for the review.rnrn~Vivian
