well the wording is wonderful, and the rhythum works wickedly in the first four lines...its just the last two it loses it ever so slightly: maybe: "But what kind of demi-god would deign

I actually like the rhymes, but I am always fond of writers who can do that. My rhymes always sound so forces and out of place. All of yours fit nicely though. I like this one.

I love it. It was short and perfect. It made me smile. I loved the words that you chose... just perfect.

you had reviewed one my poems.. "Humanity" and you are right.. I am probably both a cynic and an idealist at the same time. I guess it depends... =) Thanks for the review.

XD That is so funny. Planes shine brighter than stars where I live. Great poem, just makes my heart feel lighter. Heh.

Excellent structure. I don't see any problems with wording and rhythm. I think your decision to rhyme "star" and "afar" was brilliant. The words are so connected, and yet they rhyme as well. Interesting. Great.

And the final "twist" at the end, where the star isn't a star at all, but a plane. Very clever. To me, it's a testament to how today's world is too over-run with technology and our own inventions that we don't even pay attention to nature: we don't even recognize the difference between stars and planes, because, to us, there's really no difference.

I like stars.

oh, so true! How many times have i wished upon a star while wondering if it really was a star? I do believe, that the magic and the granting of wishes does not completely lie in the power of stars (though they certainly have much to do with it) but also in the power of hope and perseverance.

I love how spelled magic'ly and i love that you didn't stretch the poem. some will write on a subject and go on forever when only a few words will due.

Well done!

Hahaha, I really enjoyed this! It reminded me a bit of Dr. Seuss, but that's mostly due, I think, to the fact that I just watched "How The Grinch Stole Christmas". ;

Anywho! I really enjoy it. But as you mentioned, there's a bit of an issue with rhythm. I can't pinpoint where, but it just flows awkwardly for me. Sorry that I'm no help.

I find, though, that if I don't look at the poem for awhile and dig it back up a week later and reread it outloud, I figure out the problem.

This is quite true actually, you don't know whether a star IS a star or a plane sometimes (or maybe that's just me)Anyway, I liked this poem,well done!~Savetheplanet :)
