Poet's Notes about The Poem

Looking under ‘Forms' this site isn't checking the poetry form of poems submitted. Some poems, not all, are listed under a particular form and have no relationship with that form. I might as well put on a shopping list.

    Definitely it differs from other sonnets that you wrote. The wish list is thoughtfully prepared. (Report) Reply

    I've enjoyed the shopping list of mouth watering foods and also appreciating your original motivation of putting a shopping list and calling it a sonnet. (Report) Reply

    The indictment is on world-wide educational systems as much as it is on the site itself.
    None-the-less, I enjoyed your shopping list. What's for dinner? : -)

    Keen observation on what is happening around..........Very well said Mr. David. Form is so important for a poet and poetry, Free verses is the best form if we write a poem is on random scale. (Report) Reply
