nice one :)
I love it. I'm bollocks at poetry, and I think you sum up Snape perfectly. I'll read some of your other ones within a week. I really want the beta boards back up so I can help my house in the Three Broomsticks!
Perhaps signature or hallmark was the word you and Snowlily were looking for? :)
In any event, this evokes such powerful emotions that your love of Snape's character and the dilemmas that brought him to his ultimate fate fairly leaped from the page as I read it. I can't wait to read more of your work.
Author's Response: Thanks, Atrox :) Glad you are enjoying my work. Feel free to start a fan club ;P
Speaking as a die-hard Sevlily fan, I have to say this was an awesome poem. XD
Author's Response: Thanks, glad you liked it. Alas, I am a Snape disciple too.
Amazing! It was supubly well written, with a very good....er.....I'll have to say motto for lack of a better word. I really liked the whole poem.....it was extremely good, and I hope to see more ( much more) from you soon. =)
Author's Response: Thanks. I am thrilled at the reception this one has gotten. I have two others in progress. I tend to write in a "lyrical" style with a catch phrase or the like. I think that's what you meant by "motto". Glad you enjoyed :)
This is a really good poem! The words flowed really nicely together, and none of it seemed forced, just like Carole said in her review. Being a huge Snape-fan, I'd say that this is one of the best things I've read about him. It was very sad, yet sweet. Really great :)
Author's Response: Thanks. I am lucky in that poetry has always come easy fo rme. The poetry sort of just comes to me and I just need to write it down before it flits away again ;) I do sometimes "resort" it though, or add more later. And of course, Snape is my fave too. You will undoubtedly see more of him in my poetry or fiction.
Well said, er, written.
Author's Response: Thanks :)
Hi there, I like your poem. You have a very good flow to it and the rhyming scheme doesn't seem at all forced. The subject matter is very sad, as well, and I can imagine the guilt he feels as Lily's eyes watch him.
You should check out Poetry Anyone? in The Great Hall on the beta boards - it's a lot of fun and there are some interesting challenges that you might enjoy. Anyway, enough of the plug. This was a good poem and I enjoyed reading it. You captured Snape's emotions very well. ~Carole~
Author's Response: Thanks, glad you liked it. I found Poetrry Anyone on the list of permission groups before I submitted this. I put in a request to join but have not yet been given access. Can't wait to check it out.
I loved this . . . Absolutely breathtakin. Fantastic job. This is really your first?
Author's Response: Thank you so much. It's my first completed Harry Potter themed poem, but not the first poem I've written. I have over 50 poems to date, on a variety of subjects and differing styles/ rhyming schemes. A few of them were even published by National Library of Poetry and I won an editors choice award for one of them.
