This is very nice, very beautiful. This really shows the grandness and the majesty of Admiral de Grasse and the French during the height of the old empire. I see it as capturing aristocratic glory (and a sort of antithesis to that in the ocean life) in a description of one second.

On a grammatical point, I think this poem really exemplifies your abilities for great word choice-the actual words and structure are spare, but you somehow fit layers and levels of emotion and meaning into every word.

And, as a completely unrelated point, I have discovered one important benefit from my AP US History class this year-I can read your poetry without having to run to an encyclopedia to find out who all the historical figures are.
