Polyacrostic Palimpsest - Testing Times for Sonnet Rhymes - What Enterprise!


Pressed, the mesh inset in style hides, shy.
Efforts knit span lines to link as I -
Not on trite end - top levels mask, text free.
Your summons seeks, a bubbly threaded key
On to straight end true, whose inner cry
Uses the prose, its music just, to tie.
Reread, prime the brain, gold runes there be
Haste. All nets art, stands meter ready,
Ever here rests precious. Test apply
A hidden cue where a verse pitch reply
Renders truth's initials to train thee.
Take these echos, guest, yet peruse them well,
Sharp telescopes help set score, context spell.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The surface sonnet is online for the record but neither acrostics nor the anagrams are visible.
The Palimpsests are
What Enterprise
Open your hearts and happiness will become true
Or foster new hopes, giving joy anew
Adjacent letters (vertical, horizontal, diagonal)
spell TEST over 30 times

And said, “I can summon a million of men
