What You Can See

by Liberty

Note: Keep in mind that my seven-year old sibling asked me to publish this on the Young Writers Society. Scartch that. Begged me. Anyways, I just wanna tell you: go easy on the review or comments.


I can see trees.

I can see fleas.

I can see grass,

with lots of seeds.

I can see rain,

dripping on heads.

I can see fishes, 

splashing in the pond.

I think the parts with the more complicated sentences in the second half of the poem evoked much more imagery for me - also a quick tip - for poetry it's a good idea to make sure your imagery is all in the same family.

ie. if you're writing a "star and sky poem" don't use the imagery of a puppy and a computer, because it doesn't fit the family of imagery.

In this case, Butterfly did a great! job of focusing on one family of images, the only one that didn't quite fit for me was the fleas - it is nature, but it's just not as evocative as the others, and doesn't quite feel as related.

Nice work, never stop writing, poetry is like any art - you have to practice and practice to get better - and it's really great that you're starting young and stretching those poetry muscles already!

all the best,

Heya, Liberty, Casanova here to do a review for you.

Well, to start off, I would like to say that this is really sweet and touching, especially since it was your seven year old sibling. That really touched my heart there, and I think I'll go easy on this for you.

To start off, I like how this is about just seeing things. I mean you could be using so many other things, but this is really just a walk in nature it seems like. I mean, this is amazing. Just a peaceful, walk in nature where all you see is everything that's supposed to be there. The grass, rain, hand fish just all there, looking at you. Not scared, not destroyed, just there, like nature intended it to be. Which, especially in this situation, is really sweet and innocent. Anyway, onward.

I think honestly the only thing I don't like about this, and you'll love this- it doesn't have a meter to it haha. I would love to see this with a meter, a rhythm, a rhyme scheme. Honestly I can sort of see this being in a kids movie or something, just sitting there in the beginning with a little girl or boy running through a park and tripping over a tree branch only to laugh it off as birds fly over head, but that's just me haha.

Thanks for sharing this liberty.

Sincerely, Casanova

Hello, tinybookfarie here for a review.
I think this wa so sweet! It’s really good for someone who is only seven. In fact, it’s probably ten times better than what I used to write when I was that age. Pls tell your sister that she did a marvelous job and that she should keep on writing more.
Best of wishes!

Liberty says...

Oh, thanks, she has her own account now! She's @Butterfly7. :)

Hello I'm here to give you a short review.

I thought this poem was really cute, I can see why your sister wanted you to post this on YWS. It's the type of thing little kids would like the hear. I would think about posting this in like a kids poem book or something.
I think the riming in the beginning of the poem was really cute, and it started it out well, I also think the name you picked for this poem is a really good one. It's simple and yet speaks the truth.

I guess I can't really point out the mistake I saw because @imaginer2018 has already done that. So I guess that will be it for me for now. I look forward to reading more of your poems. Never stop writing and have a great day/night.

Your friend
FlamingPhoenix. :D

My sister says thanks. <3

Hi, Violet here reviewing. I can relate, except I don't have a sibling; I have an eight-year-old cousin.

This is a very cute poem that you would see in a children's poem. Perhaps Dr. Seuss. The flow is nice and the rhythm is excellent. My favorite part are the four lines, mainly because of the rhyming scheme.

I did not like the last two lines, though. They throw off the rhythm of the lines above and make it choppy. Instead, shorten it by removing "the water." Your readers already know what's being splashed, so you can do without them. "I can see fishes splashing in the pond." It sounds better and smoother.

The second and last thing is the word 'dropping.' It doesn't fit in with the context. It works better with physical, solid objects like egg, or card. With rain, I would choose 'dripping.'

Kudos to you and your sibling for publishing this poem. It's such a cute poem. :)

My sister says thank you very much. :)
