Cryptic poesy, a mystery contained in a riddle wrapped inside an enigma.
What mystery has Poesy?
What purpose has its measured art?
Why ask, “To be or not to be?”--
when tragedy assails the heart?

What destiny has the Poet?
What future wonders wait for him?
How best do his verses show it
when other’s light become more dim?

These hidden lines from cryptic Rime
have kept the mysteries that bind
(which seal for all of arcane time)
to be of enigmatic kind.

These questions of old, ancient Time
have plagued unwitting, darkened minds:
what won’t be known in double rhyme
will show itself in what Man finds.
