There was a great cathedral
by Stephen Crane
This poem was published in 1905 in the volume The Black Rider & Other Lines.

There was a great cathedral.
To solemn songs,
A white procession
Moved toward the altar.
The chief man there
Was erect, and bore himself proudly.
Yet some could see him cringe,
As in a place of danger,
Throwing frightened glances into the air,
A-start at threatening faces of the past.
