Very well written - I enjoyed this one. I loved the legacy left by Sunset Sally even after she had passed away. I did notice a few sentences which didn't begin with capital letters, but I think perhaps that was part of the poem. (I really don't know much about these things!)
This is a neat telling of a story in poetical form.
I would only encourage you to watch your rhymes; some of them sounded a bit forced to me.
Keep up the good work!

What an absolutely lovely narrative poem!

Very moving. There's something powerful and riveting in narrative poetry. Traditional thinking may frown upon the capitalization style you've adopted, but you're consistent. With a beautiful message like that - who cares?
Wonderful poem.

Beautifully written with a wonderful message. I love your beginning stanza, "Moonlight spun on silver wings like fairies o’re the spires. Raindrops kissed with gentle lips; each droplet she admires." Congrats on being in the Featured Member Showcase!
I'm not sure how I missed this beautifully crafted poem, but I'm glad it appeared in the showcase, allowing me to find it today. Blessings, Birdie!
