I am not trying to be cruel or mean though I undoubtedly might, but you really need to work on your sound. I wrote things like this when I was in the 5th grade, though admittedly, a little less verbose and often with not so much subject matter at my disposal, but quite similar in simplicity. I enjoy your subject matter, but unless your audience is an assembly of the world's 4th graders, please spice it up a little, at least vary your line structure a little. You say you've read Shakespeare and Dickinson, but you're too uniform. Remember that on of the best parts of writing formal poetry, is breaking form to add import or delay understanding from line to line. Without variation, people might (as I admittedly had to fight doing out of respect to you) skip to the end or stop reading entirely. However, as a poet you have every right to continue in any way you wish. I just couldn't continue reading your work without at least voicing this. I really do enjoy the content. A fan (albeit, a critical one)

sir, you are one of the best writers i have ever known. your poetry really mesmerises the reader to such extent that he cannot (even if he wants) stop reading. and every time a poem is read..it tells something more about you. a genius...you are sir. you write beautifully. (though this is an understatement)

If you haven't read any of Greenwolfe's poetry, you are truly depriving yourself. I would easy place him in my alltime top 10 best poets, I mean with such greats as Langston Hughes, Dylan Thomas, Pablo Naruda, to name a few, this guy should definitely be mention. Why do I say this, well take a moment and read just one poem, and I won't suggest any to you, just pick any one to read at random and you'll soon feel the same. I am both awed and inspired to continue to write with all my heart by reading your fine poetry. And I'm even prouder to call you... Friend. In addition, he's not one of those who makes himself inaccessible by being a read only poet and not a reader of others works, His assessments are fair and his critiques sometimes rival the beauty of the poem written. A true poet and a truer friend.
