Conatus trimetro iambico.


Aloof as stardust rains
Are memory dim prints
Eliding tensed face
By shadows within of
All conquering space that
Inly trusts each friend
Of madness—whose embrace
Accept with no delays
To take one final look
Before you turn Rose ways.

A rather rare meter in English, but much easier once you let enjambments in.
