    Strange poem, but interesting images.

    Awesome poem ! Very brief for a master... Especially liked this:
    Only the theme I sing, the great and strong-possess'd soul, eludes not,/One's-self must never give way, that is the final substance, that out of all is sure
    Hoping this is not true... "Remorse is memory awake," - Emily Dickinson LXIX / or Remorse is memory awake... https://www.poemhunter.com/poem/remo...-memory-awake/

    King & Queen... enjoyed

    Godiva... incredible use of language.

    through the bamboo grove;

    "Lingerie-Godiva"-original. Moonlight-lovely!

    Sonnet to Liberty: "in some things" an interesting way to end the poem.

    Only...: "But it meant such desolate years"... so sad.

    Both preceding poems speaking about the power of the written words.
    Preludeis a good hands up for distinguishing verses from poems.

    Some good questions:

    "Quoth the thief to the dog, let me into your door"
