This is part of a poem... I am having problems with one stanza...your feedback is appreciated...My feeling is that the second stanza has too much in it...

First draft:

Deep within the valley
a glint of light revealed
a gentle flowing river
near a field of daffodils... 

(Decided to stay with the first version)

I like the first better, more concise but conveys the image well.

I agree with Fee, I like the flow and rhythm of the first stanza. Hope this helps.
Hugs, Laura

I like both versions but the first would be my preference, it has a nicer flow and rythem to it when read out loud.
