Subject(s): Churches; Cathedrals

Through monumental windows of stained glass,
Uncertain morning sunlight wanly steals;
Kaleidoscopes all comers as they pass: --
Each dowager in splendor as she kneels
On padded satin knees, confessing all;
Devout young matrons on whose pious breasts
Corsages of frail orchids rise and fall.
The organ rolls. Birds trill. All manifests
Magnificence. The hopeful pastor smiles
As ushers, sleek in proper morning clothes,
Proceed in order up and down the aisles;
Insinuate beneath each Christian nose
A silver plate. Gold is a synonym....
The worthy pastor knows... for love of Him.
