Reviews For Her Hand

By no means am I an expert on poetry, so I'm really not sure quite what to say. But you took the time to stop by and review my poetry, so I figured I would do the same for you. :)

This poem was absolutely breathtaking. This is one of the most unique views on the relationship between Harry and his mother that I've seen, and it's very saddening. However, while the length of it is impressive I think it takes away from the overall depth of the poem.

Her hand, no longer held out,
Yet still lingers
With the promise of protection.


This is a perfect way to describe the protection that Lily's sacrifice provided for Harry.

His hand, young and small,
Briefly touches the mirrored glass


And this really captures Harry's deepest desire, when he looks into the Mirror of Erised. However, that last line is the one that really got to me...

And they will, one day, clasp each other again.

This poem is a wonderful view on the love between Lily and her orphaned son. Well done. :) ~Ashleigh

Author's Response: Wow!!! Thanks for taking the time to review. Sorry if the length was too long, but I really wanted to capture every essence I could of their relationship, and also how they mirror each other in their sacrifice. :)

I noticed that you made You Want To Make A Memory by Potter, one of your favorite stories... Did you read the whole thing? What did you think of it?? I did and I loved every bit of it!(:

Author's Response: I absolutely adored that story- that's why it is in my favorites. I also left a review behind for it, albeit short, since I was in great awe over it. :) I just loved the little details the author used, and the story made me cry at the end! I felt so bad for Remus! At least in the end he made up with Sirius! FYI, if you wish to contact me, use the contact button on my author page.

I love this poem! I don't usually read poetry (yours is the first poem I've read on this site) and I thought that this was really beautiful. Seriously. I couldn't write poetry to save my life, but you certainly can! I loved it, and I almost cried at the end. Good job!

Author's Response: I'm really happy to hear that! Thank you! I was inspired by my baby sister, who loves to lay her head down on my hand. I thought then that a story from the perspective of loving hands would be interesting! Thank you for your review! It has made my day!
