Palindrome - Longed She For Real Presence - Poem by Patti Masterman

Longed she for real presence,
Songs; stillborn fantasies,
Captured fall of day reveries
Plaintive notes of piano started melody
Rapture her soul, of diffident lovers;
Fires her ravishing burnt, wholly
And pain clasped like lover,
Dying in long pitiful deaths
Only end of hope to reach-
Prayers half mumbled in her entreat
Sigh; as trembling ghost is freed;
Freed is ghost, trembling as sigh-
Entreat her in mumbled half prayers,
Reach to hope of end only;
Deaths pitiful, long in dying
Lover like clasped pain and
Wholly burnt ravishing her fires
Lovers diffident of soul, her rapture
Melody started piano, of notes plaintive
Reveries day of fall captured;
Fantasies, stillborn songs-
Presence real for she longed.
