Aww,that was so sweet! I liked the part about the rose that never died. I'm guessing that the bride is Hermione, and the groom is Ron
Author's Response: You are right! Thank you for reading and reviewing, the extra mile means so much to me. I'm very glad you enjyed it. Thanks again!
I LOVE this, it is so beautiful. You have captured Hermione's emotions really well and the white rose description is very deep. Please submit more, I'd really love to read what else you have written! :)
Author's Response: Thank you LOADS!! I truly appreciate your thoughtful review and kind words. Thank you for reading- I'll be posting more stories and poems in the summer (which is in two weeks for me) so please come back and read some more. Thank you again for reading and reviewing, it means so much to me.
"when you offered to rescue the house elves, and I knew you’d changed, knew you’d do anything for me; before I kissed you for the first time" - definitely hermione ;) nice poem~
Author's Response: Thank you so much for R & Ring, m'dear! It means a great deal to me.
It seems to be the time to write poetry about brides... I read another one just a few days ago... anyway, loved this poem. I'm 99% sure the character's Hermione - near the beginning, I could tell it was someone who'd survived the Battle, and then your reference to "flaming hair" on the train when they first met and the tent made it clear.
The imagery of winter for the war and spring being a time of healing and something new growing was well done. Also your references to a white rose worked well, as it is a wedding and white is the traditional colour and symbolises purity.
I think this poem really shows that life can go on after something like hte war they've survived. Beautifully written.
I wonder though if you need to put in the quote at the end of the author's note? It didn't particularly add to the story of the poem to me, as you'd focussed on Hermione's perspective, plus it made it pretty obvious who the character was... anyway, that's just my opinion.
Author's Response: Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you for your lovely, thought-filled review! I believe I read the same one about brides that you did, and it was part of the inspiration. Thank you so much for your thoughts and compliments, it really means so much to a writer with low self-esteem. I don't really know why I put the quote there- I guess you'd have to be really thick or Potter-ignorant not to realize it was Hermione. I just love all of J.K. Rowling's words, and they give me such inspiration. Thank you again for reading my poem, it really helps a LOT. I'm glad you enjoyed it!!!
Beautiful. Absolutely Beautiful. I loved it. It was the best poem I've ever read, my favorite, because it's not ryming.
Author's Response: Oh, my gosh, you simply must know that this means the world to me, it really does. I really like non-rhyming poems- hopefully I'll find time to type more of my writings and drabbles and submit them soon. Thank you SO MUCH for reading and reviewing; I can't even put into words how grateful I am. Cheers!
