I like the premise of this poem a lot. It's excellent. However, some of the word choices/figurative language seemed a little awkward to me. I loved the line "Even in pretend he could not kill," though.

Author's Response: Thank you for the review. I agree that I haed trouble with this poem since I knew the ideas I wanted, but the rythem wouldn't always flow right. I'll try to look it over and see if I can find better wording for some of the lines.

This is really good. It's a wonderful representation of both Cedric and other children to be murdered by Voldemort.

Author's Response: Thank you very much, I'm glad you liked it. This was my hymn to the fallen, and I'm glad it worked well.

Wow. That was great. I like how the last line differs from the rest of them. Made it more interesting. And, if at the end, you said he was just like all other boys, people would be mad, and it would be a lie.

Author's Response: Thanks. I agree that while in his normal life and circumstances there was a great deal of the ordinary, it was what lay inside him that was extraordinary. As it is with all people. Even those we think are just like all the others contain within themselves the unique and may only lack the extraordinary circumstances to let it shine out more brightly. Thanks again for the kind review!

Oh, this was so very very sad!! Especially at the end! The last line and the last stanza were so, so touching! This is a very good poem. I found it because I had written some of my own poems and wanted to check out some others. Thank you for writing this; it's always been hard to find a truly good poet

Author's Response: Thank you very much! I'm glad you liked the last line, I think it truly sums up so much of Cedric's life. It's always good to hear from a fellow poet, so thanks again!
