Hey man,just wanted to say thanks for the feedback,I made most of those changes you recommended because they definitely improve the poem,and I used evensong too so thanks a lot for that,it fits very well and fixes the kind of inconsistent tone I had.
I still think it could be a little better but thatd take a complete rewrite and Im not in form for that at the moment,Im just happy I got somethin out.
Thanks for the comment, I'll have to go over it a few times to understand the literary terms you used and authors/poets you refered to. While most people would take offense to the stone-walled comment you gave I found it to be refreshing compared to the consistant compliments, (not to say I don't love compliments as much as the next guy.) Though I'd have to say I politely disagree with you on one point not all poetry is meant to arouse delight or pleasure, in fact i find the poems that disgust me are far more interesting to read than those that give me that warm fuzzy feeling.
Thank you for your comments on my poems!
'There are Better Worlds': Actually, I probably would have said quite a bit more if there hadn't been a syllable constraint in the exercise I was participating in. We were only aloud to use 50 syllables total, which severely limited what I could say in the poem. If I ever redo this one, it will be considerably longer
'Catholic Girl': Thanks for your suggestions on the line break, I will go through that poem at a later date and edit it.
