Veronica's an image of the truth
Eternal, good, and beautiful, as light,
Reflecting off glass panels angled right,
Offers up its golden garb as proof.
None are but are the clothing of desire,
Infinite in perfection and in yearning,
Cool as stone and blasphemous as burning,
An icon of eternity on fire.
