I love the title. Interesting history lesson.

You used two great pieces of writing. Maybe next time you can encorporate a little more of your own words.
Your poetry is lovely and haunting. I think you could do a great job of incorporating the story into your poem, lengthening it, instead of adding an explanation at the end. I'm not a poetry expert by any means, but I think you have a talent that just needs to be polished. :)
