This poem is EXCELLENT. I'd expect a poem like this in Masters level. I love everything about it--great use of all of the poetic tools, and very touching.

Beautiful and yet so sad! I was hooked and had to keep reading. Normally poetry doesn't grab my attention and pull me in but this one certainly did!

I liked that your poem shed light on the tragedy of child labor in India. Wonderful choice of details and powerful emotions. Excellent work.

Excellent poetry form, nice repetition of the 5th and 6th lines in each verse.

Lovely, heartfelt poem. I can find nothing to critique, as I know little of poetry, other than poetry rarely pulls me in. This was one of those that does.
