As A New Comer,One Must Know

As A New Comer
You Must Know

Scribbler and Moon man
Are the two who give?
Excellently frank reviews
Scribbler still reads me
Off and on,
But the latter placed me
In the garbage can,
Where I rightly did belong
Then municipal guys came and ran
Took me in their van

I too write about autumn leaves,
Many poems, I’ve composed
But on every site I’ve been,
They all want to say
You are a Rose
As lovely poetry,
Wow you compose.

Then there you fall flat
The next comment falls,
Like a dead rat.
You are sold to those,
Who now you follow,
But sorry to say,
You are also like us,
An autumn leaf
Of tomorrow

We all are autumn’s life!

author comment

I agree with Shirl, I've had the huge comments and adulation of another site and yet I find myself here because the poetry means more to me than the social aspect of filling my head with stuff that is superfluous so just be you and you will be fine :) Like the humor in this.

Chez
"The perfect woman perpetrates literature as she does a small sin: as an experiment, in passing, to see if anybody notices it - and to makes sure that somebody does." - Nietzsche

and joy in being an autumn leaf
for they get to fly and change their hues
they form a beautiful landscape
and help fertilise tomorrow's trees
and once again come autumn time
unfurl their wings unto the breeze.

I've not thrown you in the trash, just to let you
know, I read a lot of what you write ... and I find
some very good lines and thoughts within, but
my problem with much of it is this; you make a
comment on a poem, and deem it poetry and post
it as such. I happen to know that not everything I write
is poetry, even much of what I think is poetry (I'm
speaking of my own again here), is really prose...
besides; you post way too much for me to consider
commenting on, and by posting so much, it makes
me wonder how seriously you take your writing. I do
think you are serious about it, I just think you don't take
the time to edit, or mold each poem into what it could
be ... but I do keep reading and hoping, so you are not
in the trash, there aren't any members here that I would
refuse to read.

My advice is to keep writing, but slow down a little and
take me on a journey.

You do write in prose,Richard is right, it is sound advice he gives, he never say anything malisously. he mean to clarify and help.
So don't take it as a bad thing, but as a chance to grow as the wonderful poet you are.
this is a learning site and we all learn something about poetry and ourselves. it's not about him it's about you.

I do rather like the idea of a comment falling like a dead rat.
