Hi,
If someone said a certain poem is very descriptive, does it refer to "vivid?" Thanks.

    I would describe a poem as vivid if it evoked clear images in my own mind. This could be because the poet was observant, or because the poem was descriptive, or because the words were especially well chosen; but it doesn't have to be one of those, specifically.
