When God turned back eternity and was young,
Ancient of Days, grown little for your mirth
(As under the low arch the land is bright)
Peered through you, gate of heaven--and saw the earth.
Amazing poem~God bless
young on your strong knees and lifted up
Wisdom cried out, whose voice is in the street,
And more than twilight of two formed cherubim
Made of his throne indeed a mercy-seat..... seemingly introspective mystical formatting heart.....hard to understanding...
Or risen from play at your pale raiment's hem
God, grown adventurous from all time's repose,
Or your tall body climbed the ivory tower
And kissed upon your mouth the mystic rose. very fine poem of Gilbert Chesterton
This poem reminds of ancient kingdom's practice of great kings going round his place in the night to know about people's opinion about their kingdom's rule to know how far they are ruling and people's ideas about them! Thanks for sharing this nice poem here!
