Superb. From the title to the last line, this was outstanding. Absolutely loved it.

What a description, "past the little mounds of sorrow". You have so many good things in this. The metaphor of the little girls innocent words, "sting, striking, and piercing" like the snake that killed the little girl is excellent. Your story is heart-breaking yet there is hope (your ending verse). Excellent!

Very nice writing. I LOVED your mini poem in the middle of the piece:
Little daisy, bright and blue
Grew up my garden path and through
The village, and then down the dale
Reminder sweet, along life’s trail.

You have an exceptional way of drawng your reader in. This is a great story.

Beautifully written; reminiscent of Henry Lawson. In fact, it reminded me of Henry Lawson's The Drover's Wife. Well done.
