Please do, Ogg is good.
The reason I made that (off-the-cuff) suggestion was that the ending 
seemed just a little abrupt. I thought a reprise might fix that and 
achieve an increased sense of closure.
I'm picking at very fine details here; it doesn't stand out as a flaw
in the piece. But then, as you surely know, attending to subtle details 
can make all the difference.
