    Only four stanzas of this poem are readable. For rest i do not think it is adding any beauty. But four stanzas are super complex of your imagination (Report) Reply

    what's with be in Gazed I on that braz'n be? ? , , , , , , , , being? beast?

    i like it. i like the ryming, and the unique arrangement of words to save words and help make rhymes. i like the contractions and repetition of stanza-ending line.

    To free captivity....this throws me a bit.
    i at least don't mind the repetition of death, nature, fear, and angel, but it makes me think you may have been getting paid per word!

    i read something from google about you. someone (some professor?) said you are a god-believer or somethin', but 'he' also said that your poem indicates that you fear death. i wonder if you ever told anyone that you fear death. hmmm? you can tell us!

    i find it interesting that i (and others) jump to the not-so-based-on-fact conclusion that a poem portrays the author's life or beliefs. it could be that a poem is totally unlike the author. i have to remind myself of this sometimes.
    thanks for sharing. scaredy cat! ! to MyPoemList. bri :) (Report) Reply

    Very good poem. Fear carries one through the poem without breath. I wish there was some realization or personification of the angel's character. I liked this poem, please read some of mine! (Report) Reply

    the random repetition at the end only takes away from the poem instead of adding more meaning to it (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
