What can I say except "WOW!" I wanted more and that's a good thing. Well done.

Welcome back! You've been missed, and poetry like this is one of the reasons why. Simply outstanding.

A tiny nitpick: "o'er" instead of "ore".

The last stanza was a super kicker, and I also really loved the repetition of the last line of each verse...gave it additional poignance. Very nice.

I continually marvel how each well-chosen word in poetry conjures up complete visions in my head. This chunk of history in under 200 words reveals the pen of one of my favorite Master poets. Welcome back, sweet writer! You have been missed.
Yikes...if this is bad, we're all in big trouble. It's terrific, Purity...excellent even. Thanks for sharing it.
