The Pilaster
By Elizabeth Madox Roberts
From “Under the Tree”

THE CHURCH has pieces jutting out
  Where corners of the walls begin.
I have one for my little house,
  And I can feel myself go in.
I feel myself go in the bricks,        5
  And I can see myself in there.
I’m always waiting all alone,
  I’m sitting on a little chair.
And I am sitting very still,
  And I am waiting on and on        10
For something that is never there,
  For something that is gone.
