"I don't know where I'm going, but I'm on my way."-Carl Sandburg
Wow! Wonderful elegy, Luke. That turn at the end of line 4 really works, and then the "We sons and brothers and cousins" just ripped my heart out.
I just love this poem. The tone is a little more playful than others of yours, but that playfulness is kept in check by the sonnet form. It (like the entire first section of your book-to-be) is a favorite.
Thanks for the kind words, y'all, and for taking the time to read and share the poem with others!
