Divine Makaretu
« on: July 27, 2019, 02:05:17 AM »
A memory from my childhood in poetic form. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated as I found the writing process incredibly cathartic, and I would like to polish this piece. Happy to provide a broader context to the piece if that would be helpful.

A child of the river,
youth burst forth upon
bent gorse thorns,
stumbled o’er stones

Down muddy paths
to emerge clean,
through baptismal fires
of fresh snow melt

Dry shirt o’er head
torrents were forded.
Divine Makaretu alone
couldn’t sate the thirst

Instead of goat
a goose was slain.
Two goslings roamed that summer
upon my back lawn

Change o'er to over, don't use any archaic words my friend, it is frowned upon to other poets and writers. Also it was good piece, I have nothing else to say about it.

Thank you for the feedback, much obliged. I’ll make sure to steer clear of archaisms in the future
