Very Good

I really like this poem. It almost introduces one fully to another culture
In that, it's a 7 for imagery and 'reality'
The advice I'd give is simply be careful not to 'overflow' cause it has some run-on issues
Keep going though, cause this is GOLD!

Good poem. Is 'ould' an old spelling of 'old'? What about lammas, are they, by any chance, lamas? I feel like this style is imitating more than one thing at once (or reminiscent of), and am not sure I am familiar with them all. Only makes it interesting, hough.

Thanks flanders, as always, wonderful traveling with you. And a Black Bushmills sounds great even though it is morning here I would love to tip a few.
Some Catholics here find Jamesons the one to choose. I prefer old bushmills and always will.
Thanks Michael
