300 years ago a man saved our village.

Two days ago another was returned.
I don't know who or what he is or why he wants these girls.
All I know is...I'm next.
What is Poetry? Poetry is when an author focuses on the language they are using to describe content. Poetry can rhyme and be very structured, or be more free form and conversational.
