    Secret Thoughts and An Open Countenance.

    If I thrived on diminutives,
    Yet embraced theophanies,
    For the sake of antithesis,
    Forsaking assonances.

    Would alliterations sublime,
    Encompassed in time,
    Sejunct bold neologisms?
    In order for tropes,
    To cakewalk with the Pope?

    Let's see if I can parse this posey...

    If I thrived/subsisted on small words
    Yet embraced the visible manifestation of God
    For the sake of opposition
    Forsaking in the repetition of the sound of a vowel
    or diphthong in non-rhyming stressed syllables near
    enough to each other for the echo to be discernible
    of such excellence, grandeur, or beauty (chants?)
    as to inspire great admiration or awe

    Would the occurrence of beautifully crafted rote prayers
    Surround and have/hold within time
    Separating bold newly coined words/expressions (novel expressions)
    In order for figurative/metaphorical uses of said words or expressions
    To curry favor with the Pope

    My first approximation... will give it more thought.

    Ta ! (short for tarradiddle),
    tailor
    tailor

    who am I but a stitch in time
    what if I were to bare my soul
    would you see me origami
