A very stirring piece that reflects on a tragic piece of history. Your words brought this sad time to life for this reader.

Dark, dreary, but with hope at the end as survivors come together to share what they have. Love this poem!

Very creative take on the topic. I like this!
This is a powerful poem. I think a lot of it went over my head and if not for the footnote I would have had an even harder time understanding it. Although my ability to comprehend some poetry, I still felt tingles at the descriptions you painted. The rhyme and rhythm were amazing and left me in awe of your talent. Though I do see the connection to the era and the variety of the different levels of people described, I think some might think it's weak on topic. It reminded me a great deal of Shakespeare-- though over my head, I can still appreciate the beauty of the words and the talent it takes to compose such a piece.

Very creative.
I think you set and maintained the mood of this piece beautifully. The wording couldn't have been more perfect for the theme and along the way not only was I entertained and challenged, bu was taught something I'd not known. Great job.
