I wonder what she meant by making a love scene appear "foolish" —?
I think she meant that love scenes often look unnatural and idiotic, but her favorite does a good job in making it look real.

I thought this was an exceptional poem that flows perfectly in the classic way.

It's a well-written poem, but I am confused a little by the meaning of the last two stanzas. Is she comparing life to a movie?
