a dove's wings in unfettered glory fly
away, away, away.
Into a vast ocean of open sky
so free, so high.
Is it we that make the earth shake
with weighted dreams of sighing clouds?
Or is it the lightness of the wind.
Tickling its rocky crown.
This one is very good I like your title of the poemI wish I was sometimes a bird they are ALWAYS freeand I wish I could fly hihiiiI think your message of this poem is that we all want to befree, but actually nobody is freewe all are caged in a body that we not have make by ourselvesI know the answer right now!We ARE free and happy thoughts let us fly I like your thought of this poem, you use strong wordsYou are a great writer, keep on writing Love: Bree
Hi! I am Anna-Grace and I am going to attempt to review your poem. I suck at reviews so be prepared haha.I personally love any poem that can make me feel something or clearly picture something. You did that. I felt free, I could picture clouds and the wind. I loved it.I love the way the poem just flows and your choice of words. Keep it up!!!-AG
Well obviously the dove symbol is a little over-used, don't you think?These are cliche aswell; vast ocean of open skylightness of the wind.
A nice poem that makes you think about deep things... Okay, so is that first "a" in the first line supposed to be capitalized?Second, in your second question, you don't have a question mark. Also, I think that those last two sentences that make up that question should be connected somehow, like maybe with a comma, and then have a question mark at the end.This was an interesting poem. Although the meaning of this poem is a little unclear, it leaves an open question that I guess lets people think of their own answer. Perhaps that's why it's so obscure?Great job!
I'm Sunset, and I'll review your poem today, Verser! I'll try to make this a good, long review, but since it's a shorter poem, I might have some trouble. Anyways, let's get to it!

In just two lines you have explained so much! I have read some of your other work and I really enjoyed this one! This reminds me of a show/anime I can't really say the name, much less type it. But in the show, nothing is free. Everything cost something. Not just things you buy in the store, peoples love, joy, and others! Nothing is ever "free" and I believe you expressed this thought very well! Bravo!
love this <3
Nice concept you got going there, really it's interesting. I wish you'd have made it longer though. Maybe listed things you'd criticise about "a world like this" when it comes to the term "free." That would have been far more interesting in my point of view. As in your poem i see you are definitley questioning the values of what "free" really is, then i think your title should too, and even though i like the slight challenge or sarcasm? (idk what to call it) tone in your poem, more would have been far more than welcome.Also the structure is quite frustrating. Either put it all in one line, or do it like this:Define free,in a world like this.orDefine free, in a world like this.orDefine FreeInAWorldLikeThisidk, I would have liked it more.
Hey Verser!Welcome to YWS~Thought I'd pop in. Sometimes it's hard to get reviews on really short pieces like this.First, as much as I hate to disagree with a fellow reviewer, sometimes the name of the game isn't How Long Can I Drone On About A Topic Everyone's Talked About At Least Three Times In Their Lifetime. Simplicity can make just as big of an impact as four or five stanzas expounding on freedom can.I have one tiny little nitpick.I would suggest starting the second line with a lowercase i. The entire poem is one sentence. Grammar can still hold even if the sentence is broken.However, grammar is a fickle subject in poetry, so do as you wish.I do want to talk about your title though! I feel like your poem would make more of an impact if you changed the title because really you're questioning freedom. I think, and I may totally be extrapolating here,that you may be saying that we don't have freedom. Titles are more than a something pretty to go above a poem. They're part of the poem, especially in a poem as short as this one. Just as a suggestion, I would say a question mark could do a lot of good. Free?Anyways, you've got a nice poem here. I enjoy small bite sized pieces like this. They make you think.I hope to see you around.If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, lemme know.See ya,Megs~
Hello, Verser!RachelLeeAnn here to review!So, I like the idea you've got going here, but honestly there isn't enough to review. You should really expand. Perhaps start it out by using technical definitions of the word "free," and then maybe listing things that are supposedly "free." Right now, it's just far too short!Keep working on it!-Rae^^
Hey Verser!I really like the concept of this but I feel like you really need to add more to it! You could easily expand this poem into multiple stanzas while still maintaining the simplistic effect by repeating "Define free". Right now these two lines don't seem to do justice for a concept that could be very interesting and diverse!I do like the poem as it is now, the briskness of it does make it's point but it definitely needs to be expanded to make it even better!So overall, room for expanding but still good!
