One Crucifixion is recorded’—only’—
How many be
Is not affirmed of Mathematics’—
Or History’—
 
One Calvary’—exhibited to Stranger’—
As many be
As persons’—or Peninsulas’—
Gethsemane’—
 
Is but a Province’—in the Being’s Centre’—
Judea’—
For Journey’—or Crusade’s Achieving’—
Too near’—
 
Our Lord’—indeed’—made Compound Witness’—
And yet’—
There’s newer’—nearer Crucifixion
Than That’—
