    Poetry Hound complimented my aunt who posted the other day- she's a very good poet (otherwise Poetry Hound would not have complimented her, surely) - Any guesses on who she might be- She only has a couple of poems up right now :)

    I'm new fairly new at this website and it's 'scoring', and so I suppose I want to offer what some of you call a 'challenge'...if one must score a poem less than a 7 or 8, how about writing a comment to suggest improvements (or at least give a reason) ?
