What breeds in the heart of this aged hero
benevolent, uneasy burdened state
anatomy of cordial feelings, gullible
kindness, pierced and cracked, broken
by end of years, treachery of divided
conditioned love, struck in swift succession
of ecstasies, so heaved, exposing lines
of stress and vital flaws, how much
can he endure of contrarious shifts
collapse of nature, mysteries of its laws?
