prayers and prayers: i

and two men came 
greeting
crossing their paths
whispering to
the maker of mankind -

o, to the altar
came the men
one was the colonel
the other an half-cast
of an enriching poverty

"o lord!" whisper'd one
"how i wish my haven
could last richly
on an earthly eternity
for that dog my boots
to lick, o thank you, lord!"

and the bells did ring
everywhere
the world lay in tears
as heaven was a-ready
with some packs.

(to be contd.)
