ST. PAUL'S RENOVATED, by                
First Line: Shine, june on paul's
Last Line: For work well done.
Subject(s): St. Paul's Cathedral, London

Shine, June on Paul's,
Sun, bathe his bases,
His echoing walls
And soaring spaces.

In dome renewed,
Sweet, summerscented,
His guest be tented—
In fortitude.

All's as before;
Pier, arch, and ceiling
Confess their healing,
Curtained no more.

In this bright place
Of brought-back beauty,
Knees do your duty,
Lips say a grace!

Thanking each one
Of these restorers,
Shorers and borers,
Proppers and stoppers,
Drillers and fillers,
For work well done.
