Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.
Two Went up into the Temple to Pray
by Richard Crashaw
Two went to pray? O rather say
One went to brag, th' other to pray:
One stands up close and treads on high,
Where th' other dares not send his eye.
One nearer to God's altar trod,
The other to the altar's God.
