I loved the line about adults and jobs being mist. I thought it tied in to the beginning of your poem about rain. Overall good flow and thought-provoking poem.

I write comments as I go and then talk about the piece overall, I hope you find this helpful.

The repetition of ‘round’ struck me as a little awkward but I like how the rest of the first stanza flows. I really like the ending on the bed image, reminds me of me. I think the flow of the last two lines in the second to last stanza isn’t the same as the rest of the poem but it is not a major issue. Just shortening the lines by a word or something should fix that.

Overall I enjoyed it. The rhyming was constant and the flow was essentially there throughout the whole poem. It did show the aging of the girl in a direct way for the most part but not too direct where the poem would be boring. Keep Writing! Kaylee

-For our swap-

I honestly really enjoyed the idea of this poem. It was very well written and however short it was, it was emotionally touching. But I was a bit confused by the ending part. Maybe try some different wording to really get the point across that the young girl has aged significantly since the poem began. You could comment on the grayness of her hair, or wrinkles, or something along the lines of that.

Other than that, this is a wonderfully written poem and I did not find any spelling or grammatical mistakes. Keep up the good work!
