I like this! You did a great job of capturing a unique time in our history - and in such a creative way!
I fell in love a bit myself with the couple--he of the raven black hair and she with the sapphire eyes--as their lives unfolded in a turbulent time of our nation's history. Delightful poetry.

Great job interspersing history into the story of this poem. Awesome work! I was so scared he wouldn't make it back home alive. Thank you for the happy ending!

I smiled huge at the swell saddle shoes but the smile quickly faded when I realized it was about the war. Caught up in their story as it unfolded, I was relieved he made it home. Whew!

Great job unfolding the story interspersing historical quotes with well-written poetry.
You did such a great job of telling a sweet love story inverse nonetheless. Great job

How cleverly done! Your poetry always paints a descriptive story that is enjoyed by these "hazel" eyes. You've made this time in our history come alive!
Well done, my friend!
