Wow, another fantastic poem! I tend to favor poems that rhyme, but this is one of the best free verse poems I have read here. I love love love the form, and how you maintainted and developed it through each section/season. Your word choice is wonderful, and the ending is sad and beautiful. I am so impressed! Great job! ~Gina :)

Author's Response: Wow, really? ThankyoU! Yeah, I tend to prefer to read rhyming poems, but writing free verse (I feel) leaves your options a lot more open. Glad you liked it!

What an inspired (and beautiful) way to express the relationship between Dumbledore and Grindelwald! The division of your stanzas based on the seasons made for really good organization. Also, your most powerful lines were all the ones inside the parenthasis. The best detail, I thought, was "rage-colored leaves" - it forged the ultimate link between the topic of your poem and the name you chose for it.

Author's Response: :D Thankyou, Calico! Receiving such strongly supportive reviews really brightens up my day and inspires me to persist with my poetry.
