Polyacrostic Palimpsest - Dedicate Dream - Delicate Ditto Ditty


Dedicate Dream

Majestic maiden smiles, complete man scans
Amazed, nears woman angel, sacred, fault free
Unsung soul's crux, unused, dumb, soundless, can
Draw down, dropp dead-end deeds, and open key,
Etch heaven, heart enfeebled help, smart plan
Meld to mimamsa aim, dharma moments. Agree
As swept away are cares. Sea, earth round span,
Uniting human nature's future study
Destined idyll addressed, - add locked doors ban.
Ease scene. Remember if metered harmony
Mends madmen all, smart art may man pavan,
Age damns all hurrahs unshared - absurdity!
Unbundle unused fund of truth found dear,
Dedicate dream! Cede man-made fool dealt fear.

Majestic magic moments come when man
Amazed prays woman, angel-faced, faultless
Unsung soul's crux, unused, dumb, soundless, can
Draw dawn, dropp dead-end deeds, and, date timeless,
Etch heaven, heart enfeebled help, smiles fan.
Meld to mimamsa aim, dharma. Mime's awareness
At last may act on Fates; sea, earth round span,
Uniting human nature through world progress,
Destined ideas addressed, - add locked doors ban.
Enframe: 'Remember ever men, events, impress
Minds maimed and small, all may mumm bland,
Away age carts unsaid, unspared, act useless.'
Unbundle unused fund of truth found dear,
Dedicate dream! Cede man-made fool dealt fear.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
