I really like this poem. I often rhyme in my poetry, and I get a lot of criticism for it. I often wonder why rhyming is so out of vogue now. I really prefer it to poems that don't rhyme.

The poem itself is lovely but the reader sound rather emotionless :(

I agree. The reader sounded as though she either hated the poem, or was concerned that putting some inflection in her voice would have added too much interpretation, maybe? I believe a computer would have read it in a similar fashion, but that's not the point of poetry, is it?
