Nice poetry. I really like that word lingering. I really do.
Sheer perfection. You've got rhymne, meter, excellence in word choice, and a heartfelt poem. Should be in Expert level.
Your poetry is absolutely stunning! What beautifully-crafted phrases! A definite winner.
Very well done!
Moving on to Intermediate, you say? Good idea :p I thought this was a beautiful short and sweet poem. Thanks for sharing!
move up to level 2!
A beautifull poem! Clearly expressed so many aspects of blessing on a journey. Particularly liked the thought 'and may the rush of duty’s call fall silent on the air.' That's the only way a person can have a real break! Well done! yeggy
Very lovely! Would you consider separating your lines at each pause and starting with capitals? Eg.
Close your eyes with nightfall,
Listening to the song
Of nature's lilting melodies
Adrift on evening's wand

Oh yes, and then you wouldn't need the comma either. What do you think?
Very nice!
Hooray! Looks like you don't need to change a thing! Congratulations!!

Beautiful ... just beautiful.
Linda, there's probably not much I can say that hasn't already been said. Your poem was beautiful. When I read it the first time while judging Level 1, I wrote a comment next to it on my rating sheet, "Oh WOW! This melted the heart. Adorable!"

Congratulations on your outstanding win - totally deserved! With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
