Poetry Critical 2.0

Hey guys, Donald here.

In a few weeks, this site will be 9 years old. 9 years! And I still know some of the earliest submissions by heart.

But, boy. That’s like 102 in web-years. So it’s time for something new. I’m building that something now with my nights-and-weekend minutes (and plenty of coffee). Buy me a cup?

Random Poem:

Valenti no
unknown

Be my Valentine
 1
and I will love you
 2
for all time
 3
And evermore the sun
 4
will shine
 5
if you will be
 6
my Valentine
 7
 
 
But if perchance
 8
your lips are fired
 9
already by another
 10
Then I will take
 11
my broken heart
 12
for mending, back
 13
to mother.
 14
