    Hello Meena,

    a challenging poem, but well executed.

    You have portrayed the battle of good vs evil well. I like the King fighting like the days of old, but instead of weapons, his glare is enough to ward off the dark clouds.

    Well done and take care,

    I have never been less than impressed with people who not only can write such challenging forms but are able to stick to their story in the process and not get side tracked.
    I am all for formed poetry, however, I don't believe the form itself should ever be important than the content; you blend the two seamlessly.
