In Paulo Coelho

Virtuous and righteous
I find it
Classicism converted to romanticism,
Classico-romanticism,
A writer attracted to classicism
But retreating too
After being disgusted with,
A writer George Herbertian,
Jonathan Swiftian,
A gipsy like D.H.Lawrence,
A vagabond like Walt Whitman
Always on a pilgrimage, a pilgrimage
Like C.G.Rossetti, John Bunyan
Learning from life,
A Catholic but wholly a Catholic
But a Protestant,
A Protestant that too not
But a neo-classicist
And that too not
But a neo-romanticist.
