Wonderful history lesson - and that last stanza is darling and sweet and just right.

I'm not a poet so I have no input on that part... but wow.. you got a lot of info in here! I learned from it.

This is very clever, light, containing a lot of internal information. You really took me there.. I'll stay at the bottom with you and watch others climb. :)

I can't tell you how much I loved the rhymes of Piccu/teach you and dramatic/enigmatic. This was so much fun to read! I chose the smae setting, but our entries couldn't be more different. I had great fun reading yours!

Reading your poems is like sitting with a good friend... I always feel better afterwards. :)

What a wonderful gift!

Thank you so much for sharing.

So much information, delightfully presented! It doesn't get better than that. I agree: your poetry is like visiting with a good friend!

Now, find an illustrator and turn this into a children's book. They'd love it and learn from it just like us grown-ups. Dittos to all the other comments, especially Jan's (such clever rhymes!). "Teach you" and "Picchu" caught my eye, too, and gave me a chuckle. I also want to thank you once again, this time for commenting on my "Falling Waters...." article. I appreciate you!
