View Full Version : Night

At Night
when crickets chirp,

the moon hangs
(against the midnight blue
with little holes
that angels peep through)
tucked with gray clouds
cradled by darkness,

lulled to sleep,
with gentle whispers of the wind,
singing a lullaby through leaves
of trees

whose gentle sighs
wash away the dreams
of the slumbering moon

at Night
when crickets chirp.

Hey, nice job. Good use of a classic style without going cliché. Has some nice imagery and metaphors fundamental to any poetry.

Eh... not a fan of your unorthodox structures, like I mentioned beforem, but the poem is pretty good. Nice use of personification and some little dash of metaphors here and there. Overall sounds nice, and I like poems like these... mostly... and like mentioned above, it's not too cliche. It's not some boring poem going "ah the moon is shining silver blah blah" like what most people would do...

It's pretty good. The imagery and use of other literary devices really gives it some personality. The absence of a set rhythm is also an added plus.

Something offtopic: How can you really critic someone's poetry? Couldn't almost anything fall under "artistic liberty"?
