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)
