hiding: an acrostic plus*

sonnets no longer needed,
era of legend-love
ended before our birth

month cracked its first
egg yolk sun, surely

some lovers of
eagle know never
ever should wings

yearn for the sun
overly close or turn to
ugly ashes no poet will mourn about.

For dVersePoetics: For the love of puzzles . . .– Jumping on the new form Lillian introduced us to an Acrostic Plus.

In the *Acrostic Plus, the first letter of each line in the first stanza, when read from top to bottom, spells out a message or word(s) and in the second stanza, the last letter of each line when read from top to bottom, spells out the rest of the message or additional word(s).

Did you see what I see? 😀
