Gilbert Keith Chesterton (Гилберт Кит Честертон)


Gold Leaves


Lo! I am come to autumn,
When all the leaves are gold;
Grey hairs and golden leaves cry out
The year and I are old.

In youth I sought the prince of men,
Captain in cosmic wars,
Our Titan, even the weeds would show
Defiant, to the stars.

But now a great thing in the street
Seems any human nod,
Where shift in strange democracy
The million masks of God.

In youth I sought the golden flower
Hidden in wood or wold,
But I am come to autumn,
When all the leaves are gold.

  1. Eternities
  2. The Myth Of Arthur
  3. To Belloc
  4. The Towers Of Time
  5. The Mystery
