Lines Written Beneath An Ardent Reign - Poem by Instalasi Sastra

His thought so sweetly straying
And captive in beauteous disarms of one;
His anguish gaze unconscious crying,
When atone moment lurk and gone.

For him despair as ardent slave
Bids no sin defy the soul;
The mortal visions on abyss grave
Defined reign of heaven role.

All his penance deficient surely,
But heaven sprung affection unbounded;
A tender beam in hue shone not purely
Save him, who is guilty on sins unfounded.

    I do not, Sir, understand this sort of poetry. Please explain. Is it a peculiar form of English?
