Those who do not study history are doomed to repeat its mistakes--and not relive its triumphs. Poetry is a good way to remember history, and this poem takes us into the hearts and minds of the people who lived it.

Good form...enjoyed reading.
Life Sentence (Poetry) - 8/29/2006 7:43:44 AM
It is true and it happens in real life. You have expressed it so neatly.
Life Sentence (Poetry) - 8/29/2006 2:12:39 AM
You got THAT right....sometimes selfrespect and wrong doings force marriage upon the the one who have to endure a life sentence laid upon themself.
I am the living proof of such a sentence...Oerrrrrr....but I think some sentences are worse than mine!!
Life Sentence (Poetry) - 8/28/2006 4:20:18 PM
I love how you used the second lines after a sentence to reinforce the power in the statement. Very nicely done.

Top Notch, got it off to a tee, you evoke the atomsphere well. One of the main protaganists for the whole sheebang (Richard Duke of York) was born just up the road from here (10 mins away) Coinisborough Castle.

Barnet, 1471 (Poetry) - 8/27/2006 4:35:34 PM
Very descriptive. I write historical fiction. It is difficult, from our perspective, to portray what actually happened. Often, handwritten accounts from those present at the time portray far more realistically than rehashed 21st century renditions legend.

Thanks for the lesson. Ain't gonna study war no more. Har, har.

Well, Sandie, thanks for your kind words. I must point out however that the painting isn't mine! It's by an English artist called Graham Turner.
