I love when people do it this way going from one thing down to the contrasting thing. That is the rule of the form, right? I don't always see it that way with some of the poems. Anyway, yours is wonderful, John. Congrats on your win.

Both the construction and the message are wisely and beautifully stated, John. Death without hope is the final enemy.
