Polyacrostic Palimpsest - Manuscript - Poem by Jonathan ROBIN

Madam, you theme are of each dream, none scorn
Sweet mistress of eternity the sum,
A bright star augurs hope for time to come,
New joy that none deny from Heaven's born.
Now the horn and now the drum greet dawn
In smiles, in life, in ardour welcome. Some
Can preach or can scold; jealousy's struck dumb.
Knight, king & khan a karmic oath have sworn,
Zambezi's crazy maze zones your badge worn,
Expressing need for heaven's aid. Who glum,
Dead was, from death-bed drawn, may hum.
My muse in rhyme here's summoned to adorn,
Answering prayer deep, heart loud and clear
Now may respond to praise a nature dear.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Few sites permit colour coding to highlight palimpsests, thus different layouts of individual internal palimpsest acrostics and or anagrams can only be identified in transposing every letter onto squared paper. The surface sonnet is online for the record only. Palimpsest Ms. Annick Zedman appears 4 times vertically or diagonally integrated within the text.
