I think we'll have to agree on one thing - that we disagree on what makes an attractive site.
I'm not a poet, or even a greater lover of poetry, so I'm not commenting on the content. Design, however, is an area in which I'm far more comfortable, and I'm afraid I just don't like your site from that point of view.
The entry page seems meaningless, and does absolutely nothing to inform a visitor as to the site content - why should anyone be bothered to click 'enter' when they don't know what's inside? Most sites - in fact all sites - can do perfectly well without Entry pages, I find them very irritating, because they're meaningless.
That block of twinkling 'gems' is similarly irritating - what's the point of it when you could just as easily put text links into a table? A newcomer would be forgiven for thinking that he/she had stumbled on a jewellery site - there's absolutely nothing to indicate what this site is really all about.
My feeling is that you have ended up with a site that concentrates more on visual gizmos than on the content - your poetry. Pleasant imagery is all very well, but not if it confuses and detracts from content. My recommendation would be that you opt for something more restrained and stylish - at the moment the site lacks any sense of purpose. 'Keep it simple' would be my advice.
But that's only one opinion.
