The Stone


The Tale below was carved one night,
Upon the Stone, by candlelight
...most won't believe, but some just might

    Dear Terry, your poem should get the First Prize. This is the Only poem in the entire contest which made me read again and again - just for the sheer joy of the lilting, haunting lyrics. I myself would have written this poem in a different manner, but I am not sure if I would have the desired effect! I bow before your natural poetic talent. I think I have to learn a few poetic skills from you. I shall be surprised if you do not win. But you cannot predict anything in an Online Contest - which can be easily manipulated by cyber savvy poets! ! (See my poem Poem Hunter Contest Final to have an idea of how a contest can be manipualetd...) (Report) Reply

    not a new story i guess, but well-told. even not knowing all the words or understanding everything perfectly, i loved the flow and the great rhyming.
    i especially enjoyed
    The Raven sits, with wings outspread,
    Atop the Stone which shades the dead
    ...it sometimes shimmers ruby red
    .........it sometimes shimmers ruby red

    thanks for sharing. i give it excellent. (Report) Reply
