Sonnet - 88 - Poem by Xavier Paolo Ledesma Mandreza

So why the Purpose of Writing this Verse
If their Audience your Self's Fuel conceal
Though Purpose it seems admits to this Terse
As Millions of Hearts squeeze your own Reveal
Though Ideal it be if such World subsides
As the Puritan eyes his Hook consider
Yet that World shuns Ideal; as it a-bides
Crumpled Cardinals with Stoked Thoughts deliver
So would it Ignite our own Buried Strength
That you the Adventurous be still You;
Politics or Vice retain your Sane's Length
Behind those Parliaments favour your Imbue.
Think such Last till Planets dis-align
And refer Crypted Suns shining as Thine.
