The Magical Circle of Byronic Sonnets Inspired by the Art of Tammo de Jongh vi - The Patriarch - Byronic Sonnet

Icy reflections in silent stillness,
A crystalized breath of dogmatic thought
As choices leave the spirit overwrought
In tempests of a judicial process.
Yet age permits the soul to then regress
To times when thoughts were new and born in truth
Beyond the grasp of innocence and youth
Brought forward there comes a new awareness.
We look to our learnings lest they condone
The words and deeds disciplined thoughts redeem
Justice hails from that we have always known
Ideals of the living energy stream.
For knowledge is powerless on its own
Until wisdom becomes part of the dream.
