Oh wow; that was beautiful! I won't analyse the stanzas or rhyming pattern or anything, otherwise I'll feel like I'm doing English homework! But I assure you; they were done well. I think your imagery is fantastic; I honestly felt like I was there, watching Severus and Lily lying in some long grass with the sun on their faces, a deep companiable silence before Lily unknowingly broke his heart forever. Oh, sad D:

Author's Response: Aw, thank you! I really appreciate that =] I'm glad you enjoyed it :)

Heather! I simply adore this poem - short, sweet, perfect.

There seems to be an issue with the stanzas being bunched up - or did you mean to do that? I actually quite like it as little paragraphs with rhymes within them, it's different, like a drabble-poem, and I like things that are creative like that. But I remember seeing this in Poetry Anyone a long time ago, and it was set out like a regular poem then, right? Uh, enough on that, anyway, just check your formatting, I guess!

The first stanza is fabulous. The words - dreaming, daisies, hazy, blue sky - all come together to form a beautiful dreamy image.

The repetition and rhyming works really well, and give the poem that simple feel which is perfect.

The last stanza is also very effective - it's to the point, which makes it all the more sad - but replacing the comma after 'apart' with a full stop would make it better, I think, giving those last two lines more force.

Also, I believe that 'lay' in the last line should be 'lie', as it's a person not an object.

And this review is now at least twice as long as the poem, so I'll leave it there.

Amazing job, dear.

awwww... That was sad. Very well done though! i think you should consider turning this into a one shot! That would be very interesting!

Author's Response: Thank you =] Ah, maybe I will! There's something to think about :P
