i agree, it is fun! love the archaic subtle feel to it. the way it was written was shall we say, epic? a contemporary take on an theme from the past.
when i first started on this site, i really didnt want to write all kinds of weird poetry about feelings or anything that remotely resembled a train wreck of words that expressed a rehashed emotion or whatever. i gravitated to the other guys, who wrote stuff that made you think, used dynamic imagery and harkened back to a better time in writing. this piece reminds me of that time, of that energy that i wanted to imbue my writing with. reminds me of an old piece of mine (http://www.eliteskills.com/z/93843) even, though i wish i wrote it like this.
