Very intricate and unique take on the topic. I love that line "swallowing his pride." Great job.

I absolutely love this entry. I think the way you have written and presented this entry is superb and to add any explanation would take away from its beauty. Wonderful entry... just wonderful!
Beautifully written as poetry--"frost-blanket dawn" my favorite description.
Skillful writing.
It might be good to have swag and swagman definitions at the end of the piece.
Partially on topic--
a most satisfying read!
This is a charming poem. You added a lot of visual pictures for the reader to dine on. Good job.

I enjoyed this alot. It really touched my heart as, last year, I too had to travel away from my family to work in two different states for 9 months. I identified with the MC so much ... a sign of excellent writing.
