"Swearing great hope, the exiled risk across the globe,
and dream of riches and revenge." -- Spes Fallax -- Lucius Annaeus Seneca or pseudo-Seneca, trans Doyle --
The fear of the unknown is well expressed here.
Wow, this is a powerful piece of writing, Isabel. I love that second stanza.
True - a powerful piece. Well crafted.
This one gives me a chill. I like the direction you went with it. Eerie.
Isabel, Brilliant use of allusion. Really nicely done.
This is deep, Isabel. Got me thinking--could it be true after all?
So well done, Isabel. Makes one remember being eight, and afraid. Loved the part of him looking hazy in photographs. Wow.
Isabel,You have expressed and captured this memory very well indeed.Eileen

Frightening and powerful words. Wow.
Very sad and evocative. Good to read.Thanks.Matthew

This is magnificent, and the effect is heightened by the clever choice of image. Even so, it stands well by itself. As Old Ollie says, it is well crafted. Congratulations.
Isabel,YOU exposed the raw nerve of loss. This was really WELL DONE! I really loved it~
Again, powerful, vivid...even the hazy. You are a brilliant poet.
