  • POEM: Balance by Stormy Day (2/25/2012 12:35:00 PM)

    This is an interesting poem. I love the way you've personified the heart and the mind. Your poem is refreshing and new, though it is written on a subject which has already been written on extensively.

  • POEM: If You'Re Not There(Certain Things Only Indians, Rather Only Bengalis Would Understand) by Rohan Roy (2/25/2012 12:23:00 PM)

    I felt obligated to read this poem because the title told me I wouldn't understand it, as I am not Indian or Bengali. And it is true that many of the names and references certainly escaped me, but I feel like I still understand the poem. Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems to me to be about how one thing, one person can change everything. It's strange, I almost felt like the 'you' you're speaking of was America, because you reference a lot of American things in the poem and then state how they would be different if 'you' were not there. One quick grammatical note: 'Your' is the possessive form of you, you're is the contracted form of 'you' and 'are.' You're using the incorrect form.

  • POEM: Ode To An Unknown Friend by Rohan Roy (2/25/2012 12:13:00 PM)

    I enjoyed this poem. Though, there are some tense issues present (I suppose they could be in there on purpose) . The repetition coupled with the short, two-line stanzas give the poem an almost childish demeanor - very reminiscent of Dr. Seuss. Perhaps it is the message that is seussical, as well. Overall, the poem works and is well written. The only problem I had with it is the last line, and it's not really a problem, per se. The word 'gonna' just feels so out of place with the rest of the diction choices. When I read the line it stopped me. I haven't decided if it was a good or bad stop.
