Crimson and Clover

"Crimson and Clover
Over and over."
Solo one alone
Argentine solitary bar
Provost solemn dignified
Gathered flowers for his family altar
Sequins red, on red linin coat
Chipper and yet slow
Graceful as the infinitesimal
Benign as the puffer fish
Sickle spritzes his face with heavy dew.
Descends the mountain while rises the sun.
To extend his sacrament
The ancients' pride
A bestowal of favor
The high masters of old
