Poetry Critical 2.0

Hey guys, Donald here.

In a few weeks, this site will be 9 years old. 9 years! And I still know some of the earliest submissions by heart.

But, boy. That’s like 102 in web-years. So it’s time for something new. I’m building that something now with my nights-and-weekend minutes (and plenty of coffee). Buy me a cup?

Random Poem:

Changing of the Seasons
JustineCH

I’ve put away my Summer tops
 1
and got out all my woolly knits –
 2
My jumpers, gloves, hats and mits.
 3
They are harvesting the Autumn crops:
 4
apples and grapes, the wheat and hops.
 5
 
 
The beer is brewed.
 6
The lamb is stewed.
 7
 
 
Saddle the horses
 8
and polish your guns!
 9
The hunting season has begun!
