Patrick Kavangh, The Circle, poesia, 1920-1940, Irlanda. Uncollected Poems Index, From MS Collections.

The Circle

The Circle is the Father

Diameter His Son

Spirit the mathematical centre

Thus truth is known

In all turning wheels

In all tumbling clowns

As in the Firmament deeps

Where the Prophet drowns

Blessed are the followers

Of all wheel tracks

Blessed the spoke-tortured

Christ. The axe

Traces a circle

And in that trace

Is the Power, the Word

And the Tortured Face.
