Your writing is pure excellence. This tale of Lenore is more like a folk song, as it reads so well.
I'm keen to know if Lenore is a real or fictional. Is Lenore an earth spirit or some ghost of the wood? Was Lenore a name on a bench plaque? I often think writing about such a person.
Great work, Ben.
Wow....What a wonderful tale made all the more haunting by the repeated refrain. You have an amazing way with words in poetry and so can imagine you would also be great at writing short stories too. Another masterpiece perfect in every way. Milly x
Wonderful write, I agree with Milly about the repeated refrain, I still see her eyes and her porcelain skin;
I still feel her presence, without and within, these are such deeply felt expressed emotions! With all the lines, devotion is kept to the rhyming. Well done Ben, I bow to you as an outstanding Poet.
Added to my Favorites, glad that it was Nominated!
