st. truant

More gnoetry, in four parts (if you’ve missed past posts about this, just fish around and find one – the first is here).

The poem in its original form:

st. truant
sometime annex new thy knowledge st. truant
which did her much lip then the difference laid
in the bright in thy sweet king shows excusing argument
my subject orient I fight my self

Punctuation only has been added:

st. truant
sometime, annex new thy knowledge, st. truant –
which did her much lip then the difference laid,
in the bright, in thy sweet; king shows excusing argument
my subject, orient, I fight my self.


Only line breaks in this version:

st. truant
sometime
annex new thy knowledge
st. truant
which did her much lip
then the difference laid
in the bright
in thy sweet
king shows excusing argument
my subject
orient
I fight my self


Final form:

st. truant
sometime – annex new thy knowledge,
st. truant
which did her much lip, then the difference laid,
in the bright,
in thy sweet,
king shows – excusing argument;
my subject, orient –
I fight my self.
