1. Good work. Dimeter can be hard to do well, especially with so grave a subject matter — but it fits well. I like the occasional interspersion of trochees to break up the rhythm a bit and keep the mood serious and conducive to reflection. With so many dimeters, the tendency would be for the tone to degenerate into a sing-song regularity unsuitable for thoughtful meditation.
