To My Lady

Frances Chesterton

GOD made you very carefully,

He set a star apart for it,
He stained it green and gold with fields
And aureoled it with sunshine;
He peopled it with kings, peoples, republics,
And so made you very carefully.
All nature is God’s book, filled with his rough sketches for you.

~G.K. Chesterton (ca. 1897-99)

  1. I like G. K. Chesterton so much, that often I compare myself to Frances to see if he would've liked me, too.
    Thanks for this blog! GKC was so blessed with penetrating wit and wisdom, and I love reading his words.
