Gilbert Keith Chesterton

Here you will find the Poem Ecclesiastes of poet Gilbert Keith Chesterton


There is one sin: to call a green leaf gray,
 Whereat the sun in heaven shuddereth.
There is one blasphemy: for death to pray,
 For God alone knoweth the praise of death. 

There is one creed: ??neath no world-terror?s wing
 Apples forget to grow on apple-trees.
There is one thing is needful everything
 The rest is vanity of vanities.
