Christine, I believe your comments are quite spot on. The woman you praise has a nurturing manner. Her kind ways seek to make everyone she comes into contact, better in what they do. Selfless, she shares knowledge and supports whomever she reviews.

Aw, shucks! This is so nice of you, Chrissy. Sandra alerted me to the fact there was a dedicated poem for me. What a lovely surprise! Thank you, from the heart. Really appreciate your sweet appreciation! I love that you use lower case for my name, because I do the same thing. That's so attentive of you!

There are quite a number of great reviewers here. I hope this poems serves to encourage others to review more in depth as well.

I heartily applaud your inventive slant rhyme of language and vanquish. Super original and musical...they don't look like a rhyme pair but they almost sound like one. Brilliant proximal rhymes are something I admire! Same thing goes for homage and acknowledge.

There are some spag issues, particularly with grammar and punctuation. Suggestions below:


There is someone on this site, who when reviews(reviewing) me
gives practical advice; that's rama devi.
A worldly scholar of the English language(,)
who helps me out, so then my words may vanquish.

When writing prose or rhymes my punctuation
is often incorrect;(no ;) in my creation.
And if I'm lucky, rama may review(,)
then rights up all my wrongs, to help me through.

So, rama, on this site I now acknowledge;(:)
(I) appreciate your wisdom and pay homage.
R(I r)espect,(no ,) and always follow your direction,
whenever words of mine need your correction.

We need a wise and kind soul on our site
who will take their time to make our writings right.
There are many here who'll help, you would agree(,)
but for today, my '(")Thanks to rama devi".

    Hi rama.
    See I needed your assistance to make this better .
    I am glad you saw this before it went off my listing but I did not let you know personally because I was not chasing a review from but just wanted to acknowledge you generous and wonderful poetic guidance.
    I am always in awe of your knowing way with punctuation and like many others I certainly appreciate assistance given.

    Some times when I write I try to get the syllables right rather than the poetic construct and sorry to leave out the I's but will improve in others I hope.

    I like to try for true rhymes, but sometimes they are difficult so select ones that do not detract but have a similar meaning to what I wish to say, i.e. Language and Vanquish and I always try to have the correct authors 'user name' I do particular notice of that.

    Have you thought about running a FanStory class on poetry construction and punctuation I am sure you would have many participants

    I have corrected the punctuation for this and again grateful thanks Have a great day

    Glad you liked my image selected too

    Cheers rd Christine
reply by rama devi on 06-Jan-2018
    Thanks for your kind reply, dear Christine, and for your idea of offering a class. I have not thought of doing that, mostly because I already to editing professionally off site, and prefer to work one-on-one with clients directly rather than a class format.

    I found your slant rhymes super creative! True rhymes are good too, but a fresh and original slant rhyme makes a poem stand out, in my book.


    Warm Smiles,

I guess she is a humanitarian, eager to help someone in need, doing the work of the Lord. She has reviewed me as well. I feel if we are reviewers, tell them
what needs to be corrected before the work go to far.
Very nicely written.

    Hi artisart4u, Yes that is true I would rather have my mistakes noted than believe it is good when it could be improved so I agree and rama is a very kind and generous reviewer whom I listen to. Thanks for you review also Cheers Christine

I agree with all you say about this wonderful lady Rama is dedicated to helping us improve our grammar and spelling. I often make typos and she has helped me so much. I am so grateful to her. I think writing poems in praise of other poets is a great thing if meant well like this and I recently wrote one to Tier V. King. Both wonderful ladies you have written a wonderful poem here kindest regards Meia x

I love getting a review from Rama, she is so thorough and goes over everything in the most helpful way. A very few don't understand that she is not putting you down, but thinks your work is good enough to be given a helping hand. I am sure she will blush at your tribute, Chrissy. Well done, it was lovely. :) Sandra xx

    Hi Sandra, Thank you for your review and ai agree rama does give help to improve your work not asxa put down and ai admire her wisdom and effort to assist. I am never to old to take advice. Not sure if she has seen this but if not worth writing anyway. Haven't seen a Sandra poem for a while or have I missed them. I don't often get time to review stories as Iam kept busy trying to keep up with poems. Again Thank you Cheers Christine

Chrissy,
This is so nice to read. There are a lot of people on here I want to thank, so I think this is giving me an idea for a new poem or prose. So, thanks to you for stimulating my muse. :)

    Hi Monica, Yes Rama does give excellent advice and I am not sure if she has seen it but if not I thought it worth writing anyway. I learn from her critiques every time I receive one and thought this a nice way to say Thanks. And Therefore Thanks for reading and reviewing this as well Cheerse for a lovely day ChristineHi

Since we are appreciating correctness, An ode is a lyric poem marked by exaltation (!!!) in feeling and style, variation of line and complexity within the stanza and verse forms. Although the stanza pattern and rhyme scheme are determined by the poet,
There are three strict ode forms, one of which, the English is a combined form of
English and Italian sonnets, attributed to John Keats. I appreciate Rama Devi's
reviews as well.

    Hi frierajac. Thanks for readin my 'ode' and yes I know it is technically not an ode of 10 lines etc, Bit I took poetic licence and went with poets choice of stanza pattern and rhyme so forgive my indulgence however my sentiments are one of praise for rama and ai hope that will suffice so to speak. Thanks so much for your review much appreciated Cheers Christine
