Eunice Tietjens: The Altar of Heaven

tietjenseunice003

Eunice Tietjens

(1884 – 1944)

 

The Altar of Heaven

 

Beneath the leaning, rain-washed sky this great white

circle–beautiful!

 

In three white terraces the circle lies, piled one on

one toward Heaven. And on each terrace the

white balustrade climbs in aspiring marble, etched

in cloud.

And Heaven is very near.

For this is worship native as the air, wide as the

wind, and poignant as the rain,

Pure aspiration, the eternal dream.

 

Beneath the leaning sky this great white circle!

 

(Peking)
