HARRY ROMAINE
American poet
(fl. 1895)

At the muezzin's call for prayer,
  The kneeling faithful thronged the square,
    And on Pushkara's lofty height
      The dark priest chanted Brahma's might.
        Amid a monastery's weeds
          And old Franciscan told his beads;
            While to the synagogue there came
              A Jew to praise Jehovah's name.
                The one great God looked down and smiled
                  And counted each His loving child;
                    For Turk and Brahmin, monk and Jew
                      Had reached Him through the gods they knew.
      - Ad Coelum,
        in "Munsey's Magazine", Jan. 1895
        [Prayer]
