He is our source!
I like the line about the furry friend. Good job!
I love it! It reads so smoothly. Good job.
Oh, I really love this! It's just so peaceful and lovely.

One small change: "furry" instead of "fury."

This poem makes me want to BE the author, to experience such serenity.
Patricia, This is very nice. I only have one bit of advice: the stanza about the pets in front of the fire - two lines in a row end in "friend". Is that OK? I know next to nothing about poetry?!
Beeeautiful! I love the rhyme and the rhythm! GO CANADIANS! :D
This is very nice. Good job.
Hey, Patricia! I'm so glad you decided to enter again. This is great! I love the pattern of other sources that "get us by". There's nothing technically wrong here, but I think the poem could be even stronger with a bit more variety in the phrases (ie. there are a lot of "longing looks" and "winking eyes"). Keep at it, Dearie! This is a great concept, and you wrapped up the topic quite nicely.
A nice flow, sweet images. To improve, try not to repeat words like "friend."
Wonderful first attempt at poetry. I really enjoyed this. Great CANADIAN effort!
Good job, Patricia. I'm glad you came back too! Go Canucks (and not the hockey team, either!)
The problem with couplets is that they tend to be "sing songy". Nice little poem, I think there is a lot of potential here and look forward to reading more of your work.
You had a great message with a good flow. Everyone else pointed out the other stuff. I really liked it. Thanks.
You created some nice images and show good potential. :)
