ECHOES FROM THE PAINTED PORCH, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: My fathers built a grisly hell
Last Line: Than I who coldly mock their error.
Subject(s): Worship


My fathers built a grisly hell,
And throned it with an evil peer;
Their sweetest joys breathed brimstone smell—
Naught else but worship was their fear.

But worship stabs the heart awake,
Be it from love or ghostly terror;
And happier they who praise and quake
Than I who coldly mock their error.
