Two went up into the Temple to pray...

                                                 Two went to pray? Or rather say
                                                 One went to brag, th' other to pray.

                                                 One stands up close, and treads on high,
                                                 Where th' other dares not lend his eye. 

                                                 One nearer to God's altar trod,
                                                 The other to the altar's God.

Richard Crashaw 1613–1649
