William Butler Yeats, Veronica’s Napkin, in The Winding Stair and Other Poems, 1933, Irlanda.

Veronica’s Napkin

The Heavenly Circuit; Berenice’s Hair;

Tent-pole of Eden; the tent’s drapery;

Symbolical glory of the earth and air!

The Father and His angelic hierarchy

That made the magnitude and glory there

Stood in the circuit of a needle’s eye.

Some found a different pole, and where it stood

A pattern on a napkin dipped in blood.
