I finally got around to reading this â€“â€“ yaay!
I love this. It gets stronger with every line. I love how you go from the very superficial nice and pretty girl to the Gryffindor red and golden Tigerlily (I always loved when you call her that, haha) to the girl who breaks rules and then the sad ending, because that's all she can be for anyone who never knew her.
This is also the perfect length, and a great form. I really enjoyed reading this.
Author's Response: Ah, yes, the superficial girl and the rule-breaker. I believe someone not a million miles away from me pointed that out :D. I like Lily very much - is that sad to say about a fictional character who wasn't even in the books that much? - and adore writing her.
Anyway. Thank you for the review. MUCH appreciated. ~Carole~
It was happy... And then very sad. I love these definition poems so much! And you have a great knack for them. :) Beautiful job.
Author's Response: Definition poems are interesting (and fun) to write. You should give it a go. Thanks again for this review and all the others. ~Carole~
The beginning starts off so sweet so (forgive me) flowery, and then grows (again, forgive me, lol) into something so much more - bolder, stronger. I love the contrasts especially. The end is, as it could only be, very sad. A very good poem! ~Gina :)
Author's Response: Thank you. Yes, the end was 'dead heading' (forgive me). I'm rather fond of this poem as I think lily was so many things to different people. Thank youuuuuuu ~Carole~
This one's a beauty. As beautiful as the lily.
Author's Response: Thank you. I do love Lily Evans. So brave and loyal. *sigh* Appreciate the review :) ~Carole~
