DEDICATION

from Take Me to Church


Assign my thought to humble pride
in eterne’s scepter magnified
where Hades rumbled on the deep
beneath our sound, unhurried sleep.
Affix my thoughts upon thy train
with seraphs ringed, lest glory vain
bereave the thorn-field of thy rose
with blushing fruits, and hung with snows.
