*tear* It's so sad...
I like your choice of language--the words of the poem flow together very nicely.
Author's Response: Thank you! :)
Here are a few words that I'm donating: I love your work. Hope that's enough words to satisfy your charity. :)
Author's Response: More than enough! THANK YOU!
This is so sad, and sweet, and strangely uplifting because despite Neville having no knowledge/memory of his parents, he has the candy wrappers. (Merlin, that makes me cry).
On first read this struck me as a simple poem, but as I have read and reread, there is this wonderful lilt and delicacyto the lines. You've not been at all heavy handed with the sentiment, so it feels poignant rather than mawkish.
Author's Response: Thank you for reading and reviewing! Neville's story makes me cry too. Just... I don't quite know what to say, really. I was trying to capture some of that grief and despair here without being maudlin, so I'm happy you thought I wasn't heavy handed. :) <33
