Encore! Encore! Really! And I love the french you added! :D


Author's Response: Oh, me being silly. :P I really enjoyed this poem, and what is even better is that I am not a dancer and I do not know any French! Thank you, Google! *titters* But hey, I so badly wanted to write a poem that was not in my own style of writing (I tend to focus on people and depression), so this was such an attempt. :)

Is this another Remus poem? I absolutely love this one!! I love how you describe the moon! I had to look up the French words though, I don't know any French haha!

Author's Response: No, not a Remus poem. It is about mooncalves, which are queer dancing creatures. Sorry about the French, but I found it to work out in order to give the poem a tranquil feeling. Thanks for the review!

That was neat. If I knew the French word for neat, I would use it, but I don't. I know that sounds trite, but that's just the word that springs to mind - neat. Very unique and original in using the French. Good themes tied together throughout. Nice imagery and language that lends to the overall feel of the poem. Yes, I like this one - I'm glad the title jumped out at me. :)
So after reading several of your poems, I'm just curious whether you ever poet with rhyme and meter?
Nice job! ~Gina :)

Author's Response: Okay, I hate the internet. I wrote out a nice response, and then it wigs out on me. Grr... Thank you for your review! I actually do have some rhyming poems on the archives, but I find free verse easier to work with, because my rhymes always feel forced. A good rhyming poem of mine would be "The Endless Road," which actually did not feel forced to me. :) As for meter, I am trying. I suck at inflections and beat. But I am trying to branch out! Thanks again for your review! ~Nagini
