    The Approach to St. Paul’s (1855)

    By James Thomson – (Bysshe Vanolis)

    Eastwards through busy streets I lingered on;

    Jostled by anxious crowds, who, heart and brain,

    Were so absorbed in dreams of Mammon-gain,

    That they could spare no time to look upon

    The sunset’s gold and crimson fires, which shone

    Blessing keen eyes and wrinkled brows in vain.

    Right in my path stood out that solemn Fane

    Whose soaring cupola of stern grey stone

    Lifteth for awful beacon to the sky

    The burning Cross: silent and sole amid

    That ceaseless uproar, as a pyramid

    Isled in its desert. The great throngs pressed by

    Heedless and urgent: thus Religion towers

    Above this sordid, restless life of ours.
