Three centuries before the edict of esteemed Pope Gregory,
That would restore the Eastertide to early Church decision,
Giacomo da Lentini, Guido Cabvalcanti, Dante Alighieri
And perhaps more yet unknown were poets of great precision.
Creating the sonnet for which Petrarch is credited with such symmetry.
Then sonnet crown and redouble spilled in creative collision
While tectonic shifts in time jolted Europe's reverie.
Nature still joined day and night in equinox division.
The sonnet lends itself to write the history o this mission
That led to how a twelve-month calendar became the year comprising.
The redouble gives ample space for each month's exhibition,
With three more left to fret the mind with endless analyzing
At how and why the year became subjected to this scission,
While Nature's timeless cycles human fission nullifies.
