beautifully written. I want to join you on this journey.

While the first part focuses on the noisy city life the second one draws a comparison between that and the peace of the wilderness.

All attention was on sound in this poem instead of visuals which I really liked. Good job.

    Thank you for your read and review.
    I'm confused though, you seemed to like it but gave a 4 star??

Your very pleasing poem got me all excited and then magically calmed me down, just as you intended. This is a textbook example of following a writing prompt to the letter. You did a wonderful job of presenting the perfect amount of verbiage, neither over or under doing it. You have talent. Congratulations.

I think your poem is very well written and the contrasting effects of peace and noise were almost pulpable.

I grew up in the suburbs and still prefer that to all the hectic of the city. As a teen going out clubbing up until now, I prefer smaller cosy places, rather than the big noisy multi-floored places that make me feel lost. Might as well go clubbing in an international airport lounge.

Well done!

Hi there,

You've set up a great juxtaposition between in your verses here. Bizarrely I know some people who would have this idea in reverse. they hate the countryside and long for the sounds of the city. One man's...

All the best

Very well written poem contrasting noise and peace. I'll take the sounds of nature any day. And if we can't physically remove ourselves from the chaos, we can always read about it! Thanks for the temporary escape. Should do well in the contest.

Author this poem speaks beautifully to the difference between life in the city with all its noise, and the sweet sounds of life in the countryside. Good luck in the contest, Patricia

That sounds very pleasant. I miss being able to get to nature easily. I live in shanghai, one of the biggest cities in the world, and it's hard to get out. I like the imagery in your poem, it's very evocative. Thanks for sharing and have a great day
