This poem flowed very easily from one stanza to another. It was well crafted, and very enjoyable to read. I am guessing there is some real, historical basis for the poem. I would love to know what it is.
Well, I am thinking but I'm not sure if I have the right "bows" to tie up the loose ends, but I can say this writing makes me think of a kingdom poetically envisioned by J.R.R. Tolkien. Regardless, the moral of the story is both classic and timeless - even with a bit of whimsy thrown in for good measure.

A very captivating poem, with a thought-provoking end that turns the reader into an (in my case, uncertain) participant. Hope you will reveal the background once the results are out?
Very powerful words telling a wonderful story.

What defines a Master?

This piece is all the definition i need!

My experience thus far as a writer, (being still in its infant stage) limits me from critiquing a Master Poet.

Yet I know when I am intrigued, captivated and thorughly satisfied by what I read!

This poem has done all of these. Thank You.

A winner in my eyes.

Wow... what an intriguing story! A clever ruse, indeed. This wonderful poem reminds me of the epic poetic story-telling of Browning and Tennyson... truly a masterful achievement!
