Excerpt

Bronze entrance doors alive with angels' wings
Mellow the Western face--a field of stone
Furrowed with devils. Saints in martyred rings
Halo vast windows, light as thistledown.
The wagon empties and a hooting clown
Skips up the shallow steps: "Ho! Feast your eyes!
Flounced, scalloped, stuffed with hay, gay skin and bone,
Faith, Love, Death, Song, creep after him like flies.
