Christmas Poem


Written by: Chesterton, Gilbert K.    Posted on: 02/22/2006

Category: Misc.


There fared a mother driven forth
 ;  ; Out of an inn to roam;
 ;  ; In the place where she was homeless
 ;  ; All men are at home.
 ;  ; The crazy stable close at hand,
 ;  ; With shaking timber and shifting sand,
 ;  ; Grew a stronger thing to abide and stand
 ;  ; Than the square stones of Rome.

 ;  ; For men are homesick in their homes,
 ;  ; And strangers under the sun,
 ;  ; And they lay their heads in a foreign land
 ;  ; Whenever the day is done.

 ;  ; Here we have battle and blazing eyes,
 ;  ; And chance and honour and high surprise,
 ;  ; But our homes are under miraculous skies
 ;  ; Where the yule tale was begun.

 ;  ; A child in a foul stable,
 ;  ; Where the beasts feed and foam;
 ;  ; Only where He was homeless
 ;  ; Are you and I at home;
 ;  ; We have hands that fashion and heads that know,
 ;  ; But our hearts we lost[INVALID]-how long ago!
 ;  ; In a place no chart nor ship can show
 ;  ; Under the sky's dome.

 ;  ; This world is wild as an old wife's tale,
 ;  ; And strange the plain things are,
 ;  ; The earth is enough and the air is enough
 ;  ; For our wonder and our war;
 ;  ; But our rest is as far as the fire-drake swings
 ;  ; And our peace is put in impossible things
 ;  ; Where clashed and thundered unthinkable wings
 ;  ; Round an incredible star.  ;

 ; To an open house in the evening
 ;  ; Home shall all men come,
 ;  ; To an older place than Eden
 ;  ; And a taller town than Rome.
 ;  ; To the end of the way of the wandering star,
 ;  ; To the things that cannot be and that are,
 ;  ; To the place where God was homeless
 ;  ; And all men are at home.
