I only learned of this form this morning so I don't claim to be an expert. This is very well written but I spotted a couple of stress problems. The first in line 5: aesthetic is not quite a dactyl. You would have to pronounce it AES-thet-ic, while the natural pronunciation is aes-THET-ic. Also, in line 7: decided, again is not a dactyl. Here you would have to pronounce it DE-cid-ed, and the natural pronunciation is de-CID-ed. But what you have here is an enjoyable read. Good work!
