The High Priestess

II - The High Priestess

Between the pillars and the veil
we may glimpse the other side
.

But the holy Priestess pale
seems guard, not guide! –

a priestess made of marble cold –
she will never stand aside
not though it be for the Pope himself
in all his pride!

She is not made of marble cold
but she may only stand aside
for the coming of the King
and the King’s bride.
