Carl Sandburg (1878–1967).  Cornhuskers.  1918.
 
69. Loin Cloth
 
 
BODY of Jesus taken down from the cross
Carved in ivory by a lover of Christ,
It is a child’s handful you are here,
The breadth of a man’s finger,
And this ivory loin cloth        5
Speaks an interspersal in the day’s work,
The carver’s prayer and whim
And Christ-love.
