Till they stand stark and strange as do the trees;

That I whose heart goes up with the soaring woods
G. K. Chesterton

May marvel as much at these.
G. K. Chesterton

Sunder me from my blood that in the dark
G. K. Chesterton

I hear that red ancestral river run

Like branching buried floods that find the sea
G. K. Chesterton

But never see the sun.
G. K. Chesterton

G. K. Chesterton


Give me miraculous eyes to see my eyes
G. K. Chesterton

G. K. Chesterton


Those rolling mirrors made alive in me
G. K. Chesterton

G. K. Chesterton


Terrible crystals more incredible
G. K. Chesterton

G. K. Chesterton


Than all the things they see
G. K. Chesterton

G. K. Chesterton


Sunder me from my soul, that I may see
G. K. Chesterton

The sins like streaming wounds, the life’s brave beat

Till I shall save myself as I would save

The Sword of Surprise

Sunder me from my bones, O sword of God

Till they stand stark and strange as do the trees;

That I whose heart goes up with the soaring woods

May marvel as much at these.

Sunder me from my blood that in the dark

I hear that red ancestral river run

Like branching buried floods that find the sea

But never see the sun.

Give me miraculous eyes to see my eyes

Those rolling mirrors made alive in me

Terrible crystals more incredible

Than all the things they see

Sunder me from my soul, that I may see

The sins like streaming wounds, the life’s brave beat

Till I shall save myself as I would save

A stranger in the street.
