In the Shadows: the Priest

By Arthur Upson

(American poet, 1877–1908)
HOW long is it now, I wonder—
  A thousand years, at least,
Here the dark vault under,
  Feet to the East,
Supposed to be Paradise-walking, a purgèd priest!        5
Well, none of them see me, thank heaven,
  As they pass me here on the hill—
So long as they live they’re shriven,
  And when they come here—they are still.
