I was very struck by the vivid imagery in this poem, and I think that the author has a gift for weaving quite beautiful, haunting images together. The stark, bare lines created layers of atmosphere and potentiated each other, and built to a whole that was arresting and striking. A beautiful uplifting ending, too.
My name is Nicholas Lesniak I was born in Poland but came to Ireland when I was four years old. My interests are writing learning and cycling: last year I won 3rd place in Ireland for Polish Grammar. I live in Kilkenny. For a school project we were meant to write a poem everyone said that it was good so I decided to publish it . This poem means a lot to me because it was my first poem that I wrote.
