goodbye [Triolet]

Goodbye my bonny lass So goodbye to you my bonny lass Be kind when you think of me, The days we shared now gone, alas So goodbye to you my bonny lass, Our love like shadows as they pass dreams that were never meant to be. So goodbye to you my bonny lass be kind when you think of me. richard

The point is rather than keep saying, “I love you- you are my heart My soul ex” is to express such emotions in imagery otherwise the poem becomes a bore to the reader. And as to grammar the last stanza is way off These are only my opinions my friend to improve the poem And made in good faith Richie

You have the basis of a good piece here.

Full of imagery and imagination, I found it
Strong in language and quite profound in its style.
I can’t critique right now but wish you the best with
Revising this. I will try to come back to it later.

The dreaded cliché is so feared by poets they can get quite intimidated I just try to avoid the worst, and if giving a critque just try to tell them to cut down mabe revise a line with a lot of cliche wording. Again using imagery outomaticly gets rid of cliches. Poetry is littered with cliché words ...
