Critiques and Revision

I disagree with Mr. Dalvean. I read and loved this poem. It brought to mind my own mother now gone six years. As to rating and scoring, not everyone does it, and of those who do, some may not do it well, (just as some poets have poor writing skills some who vote and rate may not have the best judgement skills) , (or possibly a poet didn't get the glowing review he/she thought was deserved and rated with ruffled feathers) I, myself don't vote or rate because I only have time to read a tiny fraction of what is written here, (having a full time job and all) , and so feel unqualified to rate and score the works that I do have time to read. If I had scored this poem, the rating would surely be higher.

I'm afraid this is not a good poem. It scored -0.5 on the Poetry Assessor (http://18.104.22.168/poetry/)
