On Why There Is Stained Glass

I have seen glimmers of that light.
It is as if we live in a death shroud,
though temple be everywhere.
I think that is why the church-builders
put in stained-glass windows,
so we can see the story upon them, in case
we are averse to searching for the light
that shines right through that picture-glass.

I have seen glimmers of that light.
I notice it when the door flies open to let
another body in.
