    Paradox is a key device in crafting good poems.I really appreciate the poet this device into play to grab attention.Fire could not melt ice, which could not extinguish fire.A great poet (Report) Reply

    very cool
    but not iced poetry
    she must be cold
    not like you warm
    some women are
    like radish and cabbage

    A very powerful poem. Unrequited love, boundless passion. So sad it sometimes is this way, and there's no justification for the emotions that won't fade. (Report) Reply

    Very truly said:

    Such is the power of love in gentle mind,
    That it can alter all the course of kind.

    Conflicting ideas, views, concepts, attitudes and what else may collide, yet, love will survive amidst all that! An excellent theme and a wonderful write. I like it. (Report) Reply

    The last two lines are so very nice. Sometimes I wish that we still talked like that so I could learn to better understand the exact connotations on all the words he uses. There is no question as to why this poem is still around. I feel like there is more to it than what it says...I wonder what Edmund Spenser was thinking about when he wrote it? (Report) Reply
