Comments about Michael White
Steeples, metal dull and tower
Stand skyward like lashes
Long o'er guarding
Eyes of walls-
Some prayers are answered,
Some not at all...
They of the prayers are showered
And fed and kept well
(As well as well regarded)
And promptly punished for their sins-
So the bounded marches never ends
Nor locks upon the cells...
And the tears the walls do not see
Are the prayers they never tell-
