@Shahzia, I'm graetful dear friend for taking time to dilate upon my babbling. I like the way you interpreted it as good critic of poetry. Such comments give life to poetry as compare to mere a few formal words.
Thanks dear......... :)
this is what i always say, a natural poet paints a picture with the tools of grammar, i love Keats for his grammatical word-painting!
the lines are 14 but with a difference with 3 couplets in the beginning and 1 is the concluding one, as the poem is unlike the octave/sestet or 3 quatrains & a couplet, but you focused on conveying your meaning through imagery, and that is impressive...
so nice lines:
Rayless moon peers at the bleak world
Specter shadows of bare boughs on bare earth
Stand palsied blades of grass and some roses shrunk
Grey sunrise, days in blanket of haze cold and stern
Memories of summer, spring's visions
For bright morns we all wish and yearn!
