Polyacrostic Palimpsest Faerie's Birthday Ode for Silent Hawk

Toast verse! Oh birthday Fairie heart strings true
E'er stanza knit free style, link in tress kind.
None letters scan, no need since star none find,
Deeds reader here disdains, nor head dreams cue.
Art secret exam, chart, restore rare value
Nowhere shrine is named, rich tune ornate designed,
Indeed is hidden within, bis gladdening behind
Covers is meshed, scored, missed, hid, scudding through
End verse. Here lines share where so few spot clue.
Hope endowed reel Heaven's clear. Add hearts signed
Erudition's rhyme, eked out blur, he ideals shined.
Annals are read as annoted and day apart eschew.
Reward, roses near, reveals drawn mirror write.
Trust my hawk does twin wings in days tender, bright.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
