|HI Percy! I found this wonderful expression on the Read and Review Page and had to stop and say WOW!
I so enjoyed the eloquence of the language as I read it aloud. The quatrains were well composed. Its flow was pleasing with an effective balance in verse, rhythm and rhyme. The soundscape showed a fine use of assonance and consonance that gave the flow its elegance. I noticed the "l",
"r" and "s" as in "living Legacy" and "resume, rescue right from wrong" etc.
The repeated words in your queries and indeed, the use of questions added drama and made me ponder as I entered into the philosophic theme.
I notice the syllables in each line are not always in a pattern..there are a few longer lines, yet I was not thrown out of the read.
The theme of tomorrow's child is relevant and the choice of polarity is ever present.
The image in the first two verses drew me in as the description of this child is vivid and I felt sad if the dark will be the fate. I like the way you banter and compare the light with dark in the questions and I like to think there is a hopeful intent. Words like "nurture", "sunbeams" and "love" shine as positive images.
Thank you for sharing your craft and vision. I so enjoyed the experience.
