I remember, I remember
The house where I was born,

The Bridge Of Sighs
One more Unfortunate,
Weary of breath,
Rashly importunate,
Gone to her death!

You show some promise, but the archaic language lets you down. Try to read some good contemporary poets and expand your thoughts without the restriction of form.

what a meaningful poem that taught me the meaning of sacrifice, the woman decided to make a song of her pains to make the rich happy although the song will never reach the rich
