[color=#846600]I often wondered when I cursed,
Often feared where I would be -
Wondered where she'd yield her love
When I yield, so will she.
I would her will be pitied!
Cursed be love! She pitied me...

There is something quite unusual about this poem. Do you know what it is?
Don't think, just look.

Of course, each new line begins with the letter of the next word from the first line.
Who could play like this if not Luis Carol, magician of poetry, prose and thoughts?
Nice Sabina!

The Poem reads the same from left to right/top to bottom as it does top to bottom/left to right.
