Yes, you did it again! I absolutely LOVE this, "to kick the Eden dew off the newborn dawn -- to outwork the sun and make him give his honest wage," There's so much is here, and with each reread, more is gleaned! Amazing!

You've drawn us out into the wide open spaces with you so well we can almost smell the sweetness of the atmosphere.
Well done.

Aw, gosh, this is too good. Your descriptions, your phrases, your rhythm, your repetition. What’s not to like? This piece comes from a revered book of wonderful verse from an internationally acclaimed master; at least it will soon enough. Beautiful.
