To A Daughter Leaving Home - Poem by Linda Pastan

When I taught you
at eight to ride
a bicycle, loping along
beside you
as you wobbled away
on two round wheels,
my own mouth rounding
in surprise when you pulled
ahead down the curved
path of the park,
I kept waiting
for the thud
of your crash as I
sprinted to catch up,
while you grew
smaller, more breakable
with distance,
pumping, pumping
for your life, screaming
with laughter,
the hair flapping
behind you like a
handkerchief waving
goodbye.

    This is of poor technical quality. No evidence of structure, and poor punctuation. Disappointingly arrhythmic, there is little use of pentameter, and this further emphasises the lack of a rhyme scheme. Usually not such a crime in poetry, but under the exceptional circumstance of there being no other poetic device, you might'v expected Pastan to pay attention to something even the average nursery student can add into a poem! She hides behind walls of pathetic and pretentious philosophy and metaphors to cover up the fact that she cannot write a half-decent poem. Long-gone are the days of Tennyson, Keats, Owen, poets who payed attention to structure and technique! (Report) Reply
