Libertine's Riddle

 as the lotus 'mongst the waft top the

     with the pretty colorful rainbow

deeply the sinews whence mine I found

every breathe bereft the passion of mine

                    whilst in hern depth

*Libertine: 14th century < Latin libertinus< libertus "somebody freed from
slavery" < liber "free"
