This is so beautiful! Who would've thought that a full day could be described in three short stanzas? You even described a short, lovely rain shower in the middle. Wonderful poem!

The imagery in this was so beautiful. I loved how you described the different times of day from the sun rising to moon coming out and went through the whole day.
The flow was nice at times, and at other times it was a little inconsistent. Some lines are rhyming, some aren't, and it's hard to get a feel for the flow throughout. Not every line needs to rhyme, but the same line in each stanza should rhyme. Or poems without rhyme can also flow just as smoothly.
Something that did seem consistent though, is that in the first lines of the stanza you described nature, and then the last lines you described these two people. I thought it was really clever how you did that, and brought it back to that each time. It made their love seem so extravagant. It was a lovely poem, with great imagery.

Thank you for your honest comment Archia. :) I agree, the rhyming was not proper. Actually I don't give prominence to rhyming. In this poem, here and there, it came. I too don't know how. The words I chose were good so, I left them there. But next time, I'll consider your suggestion. Thank you again for your valuable comment.

Thank you for your kind words, Criss :) You're absolutely right. But we've forgotten that simple formula. How horribly the way we see life has changed! Thank you again. Please take care. :)
