    The more I read it the less I like it..the meter is stumbling all over and disconcertingly, I can usually do 4 feet of iambic trying to do 5 really threw me OFF! Sorry ..

    Great ending with hidden horrors and falsely cheerful ring! Who knew? Good thing I wasn't a sailor!

    Hmmm, Why shouldn't the moon get equal gender billing---especially when it's temperamental!! Easy,easy, just kidding. Love the heroic couplet form because it seems to pull you in, and this is awesome imagery to be pulled into. Also, I am a sailor and have sought the leeward side of an island many times because fools seldom get to boast. Thank You for your kind comments. BTW Hope your day went for the very best. Concerned...
