Summer baked and autumn aged.
Fabulous rhyme and meter. I love the tale told through your poetry; a enjoyable lesson on the history of 2 countries. Lovely.
Just beautiful imagery and storytelling in this lovely verse. Fascinating history I knew nothing of too. Wonderful.
I can't imagine what it must be like to have to leave your country and start life anew, but you captured the thoughts and feelings beautifully.
This is beautiful! I didn't know anything about this bit of history, and you told it with such elegance.
A poetic memoir of someone's journey to a new land and forging a new life. Love it!

Wow. This is very well done.
What an enjoyable way to learn history! Beautiful.
