10 comments on “Ivory and Coloured Glass

  1. That gorgeous first line utterly seduced me, and the rest of the poem lived up to the promise.

  2. The repeating line is very effective in this poem. Our memories are precious, even if painful.

  3. The repetition of the phrase “vials of ivory and coloured glass” gives it a song-like quality as well as nostalgia. The speaker clearly remembers all the joys and pains in that vividly remembered past whose talismans almost have a mystical quality to them.

  4. Anyone who can rhyme so effortlessly has my admiration! What a beautiful form to transform Wasteland into what is now vials of ivory and coloured glass! Great job on the (half-given) prompt. Happy NaPoWriMo
