Hi John. I have no problem with that, if you're sure you want to do it. Comments aren't always complimentary, you see, which you might find upsetting. (I think I would in your position.)

Cheers

Hi David thanks for your reply. I know critique can be good or bad , but I dont mind either way (lets me know if it,s good or not ) I wont be upset by any critique , it was just to let people read it to see what they think.
I also just wanted to give him the credit for his work .
thanks again

Greetings, John

This is a poetry workshop not a showroom, so it is hard to see what purpose there would be in posting any poems if IN ADVANCE it was said that no comment would lead to any change in the text. All that will happen is that you will post the poems and the post will gradually pass down the list until it slips from view. I can understand the urge to want to share the poems. Very much so. But this really isn't the place, John. Honest.

Best wishes,
Seth
