|In the Shadows: the Priest|
By Arthur Upson
(American poet, 18771908)
|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 theyre shriven,|
| And when they come herethey are still.|
