Face of stone and pillared tall

still with a solemnity summoned from the earth

sandstone and granite, marble and wood

You hold within you every hope and dream and fear and plea

co-mingled in the offering basins with

starlit heavens spinning circular

around the pinnacle of your spire.

In you, the holy of holies

rests, and is

awake.
