My book is: The Life of Little Boy Death

The opening stanzas promise a work of perfect meter. Indeed, perfect meter in vital to hold together of work of such literal meaning. However stanzas 5, 7, and 9 are rhythmically flawed detracting somewhat from an otherwise engaging poem.

Great poem, 5 stars. I would advise to replace the word *shit* with *troubles* or something that means the same, while still sounding sophisticated.
Tatchania Monday, 4 May 2009
wow this is REALLY Good. i love "are you showing your shit...the door?" :D I love your vocabulary and the poetic rithym.
A.E Carter Tuesday, 21 October 2008
Simply Awesome. You described my whole military career.

Thank you for writing and sharing this sincere poem, Marshal, and for reading it last Saturday.
James Tippett Thursday, 2 October 2008
Nice compilation, well written
J.C. Nicholls Monday, 29 September 2008
I like the style here; and the somewhat circular path taken, leading, where? Nice.

wow. 'have you dreamt..' is beautiful. how else can i describe it?
Amalthea Crete Thursday, 8 May 2008
I like particularly like that last stanza, especially the last line, in 'Have You Dreamt?'. Very nice. It makes me feel that feeling which is utterly hard to describe yet very pleasant to feel. Excellent job.

Marshal has described those mid-life emotions so real to any of us who have been there.I particularly like the expression of change in the latter verses.
Momoko Tuesday, 4 March 2008
It makes people think about their lives...

I love it, it's so light and airy
R.J. Willows Monday, 14 March 2011
You lost me at a few part, but that was a really good poem! It sounded so pretty and made me feel like I was there!
Tatchania Monday, 4 May 2009
Amazing!! :D
R.J. Willows Monday, 14 March 2011
Again, that was great! I love your rhymes and the fluidity of your words. I think I'm going to print this and put it somewhere in my house, that's how much I like it!
But if you'd like some critisism, this was a bit long for my taste. I would separate it into more than one poem, if I was you.
kaz Wednesday, 26 August 2009
love your work
Tatchania Monday, 4 May 2009
WOw! i love the bit in the middle in caps locks. it captures so much. very beautifull. officially one of my alltime fav. poems. :D
Tatchania Monday, 4 May 2009

tully Wednesday, 23 March 2011
Being a true romantic I loved the sentiment and pace of this poem so thanks for the read.
Tatchania Monday, 4 May 2009
wow i could really feel the emotion in that poem, so powerfull.
Davem Wednesday, 23 January 2008
Well done Marshalg, easy reading prose as Sir Ed would have liked.
Anya Scott Sunday, 15 November 2009

SamanthaAnne Tuesday, 28 September 2010
Wow! You are a true poet!! Amazing poem! :)
Tatchania Tuesday, 5 May 2009
This poem is amazing. some parts made me laugh others made me really think and others made me smile subconciously. i found myself reading outloud and re-reading parts because it was so poetic and beautiful.
paul schoaff Sunday, 1 March 2009
Your verses are everything I hope to express and more in everything I write.

Thank you for your kind words about Twin Beeches. I tell myself I don't, but the truth is, I so enjoy having someone read a bit of it and enjoy a moment of emotional bonding with the characters.

Thanks again, and please, read the whole thing, if you like, just for the enjoyment of it.
Raimrod Z.C Tuesday, 23 March 2010
it seems.. to be about where we want to be. just guessing.. mind if you check my poem? i also have some and i really need a professional criticism about it. i wonder if you are willing to share your opinion about mine. :)

No offence, it seems a bit too down to interest me.

A life well lived ^_^, although sap never needs to cease to flow

paul schoaff Friday, 27 February 2009
Your work is uniformly enjoyable. Thank you for sharing it with all of us.

"looking back 10 meters" is my small lifetime collection of verse. I think you would enjoy a few, at least, of them.
m. morningstar Sunday, 5 July 2009
I have read through a few of your works so far, this is my favorite.
paul schoaff Tuesday, 1 September 2009
I do wish you'd get more recognition for your wonderful work.

I have too many regrets in my life for one person to keep track of, but one that do recall is that we can't sit down together, drink single malt and swap stories. I wish this site were chock full of people like you.
Tatchania Tuesday, 15 September 2009
You've awed me out of words, once again. :)
Anayellow Tuesday, 22 May 2012
Simply great! it is really well done.
paul schoaff Sunday, 1 March 2009
May I presume you are often called upon to speak at gatherings, both sad and joyful? I wonder if that is why you chose the funeral chapter of Twin Beeches to leave your note?

I am perpetually struck by the dearth of closeness and true understanding of other's minds and lives that we suffer in the States. The closer we live to someone, the less willing we are to explore their consciousness, to understand their needs and decisions.

But what really amazes me is how little people outside my family know about us as individuals.

So, perhaps, that is universally true, and they is why you and I (and moreso, you) leave literary tidbits around for others to stumble across, forcing them to acknowledge our ephemeral lives.

Truly beautiful, and it kind of reminds me of how my mom and my step-dad were. They used to fight all the time, and eventually she slapped him one day and that was pretty much the end of their marriage. Anyway, it's a great poem!
shoptillidrop Monday, 19 May 2008
Interesting poem...
Ilyaas Khaja Tuesday, 17 June 2008
A set of really great, imaginative and unique poems which use language and words that have been long-forgotten by today's society. You will hopefully revive this use of language! PLEASE READ AND CRITIQUE MY NOVEL
Clara Saige Monday, 15 December 2008
Thanks for posting this poetry. I like that some of it challenged me to look inward to myself as well as contemplate your meaning. Thanks!
susanh Saturday, 6 December 2008

Charming work, as always, Marshalg.

We like to write about work, don't we? Women never write about work, it seems, only feelings.

But do I detect a note of sarcasm in this one?

paul schoaff Thursday, 13 August 2009
very apt to my life, I must say Msg center not working very well, so I will try to leave this msg here.

we are traveling, so I hope this mail works from a different location.

yes, you can call me a cynic, though it is mostly for show and for getting people to notice a situation.

I love to leave comments on the local newspaper stories that point out how their reportage was incomplete or inaccurate.

I like facts that prick balloons. For example, when a plane crashes and kills 50 people, the papers are full of it for weeks. As the head of the FAA just pointed out, 90000 people a year in the US die of staph infections they catch while in hospital for something else....

Glad to hear from you. What else is new?
