Your style reminds me very much of Milton's. That is a rare thing, in this day and age. This piece is splendidly written. I hope you realize it.

-"lost among forests of black ink

clovers cling like gold dust

to the medieval turnings of an ancient clef," . . . these words are turned so beautifully that they create a picture in color as well as in sound.

The last line seems . . . almost out of place to the sheer ancientness and serenity and wonder of the rest of the piece. I wonder why it is placed there so.

at any rate, a great poem indeed.

Wow. You are a gifted poet. This poem is simply amazing. Your word choice is great. It wraps you up and pulls you along with the flow. Great! Amazing work.
