Not really big on fanfic writing, but when I'm in the mood I'll jot something down from time to time. I'd much rather frequent sites like YouTube, DeviantArt, and Facebook

A short little story in the style of a poem, about a day in the life of Roseluck, tending to her garden of flowers.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Written purely because I've no idea how to write up new chapters for a few of my current stories right now, plus I'd rather make a start on my new Castlecania / MLP music video-style animation as soon as possible. Also I personally think I'm just a slight teensy weensy bit better at poetry than at writing stories.

This is really quite a lovely poem. I enjoyed it very much! I liked how you portrayed Roseluck as a mother figure tending to her children. Very touching and emotional. I could seeing sitting in her garden and just being so content.

Very nice work, Unique!

I can't really relate to the story much, the last time I was able to enjoy nature was when I was around ten, but good rhyming and all that 10/10.

Very sweet poem!

7840886 Thank you very much!

What kind of a story is this? It's just a fucking poem. How could anyone allow such a thing?!

This is very nice! I really like your portrayal of Roseluck, and those few repeated lines are a nice touch. From a metrical standpoint, it wasn't always consistent, but that's your prerogative. The only true piece of criticism I have is that this stanza...

Downstairs she trotted, to the kitchen,
Where she prepared her morning fill,
A plate of greens, with a side of rice,
and topped off with a pinch of salt.

...just completely ignored the rhyme scheme. Was there a reason for that? Personally, I feel like "a dash of dill" would have been fitting, as not only does it rhyme, but it's a play on 'daffodil.' Just my take as a fellow poet. :twilightsmile:

Ah. Well, if that was your aim, you succeeded! :derpytongue2:
