A Palm Sunday poem from G. K. Chesterton:THE DONKEYG.K. CHESTERTONWhen fishes flew and forest walked And figs grew upon thorn,Some moment when the moon was blood Then surely I was born.With monstrous head and sickening cry And ears like errant wingsThe devil's walking parody On all four-footed thingsThe tattered outlaw of the earth, Of ancient crooked will;Stave, scourge, deride me: I am dumb, I keep my secret still.Fools! For I also had my hour; One far fierce hour and sweet:There was a shout about my ears, And palms before my feet. ... See MoreSee Less

C.S. Lewis Books

In his professional writings, Lewis was a literary critic, novelist, poet, essayist, and man of letters. His work captures a grandeur, precision, wit, imagination and insight seldom matched by others, and in the process, he articulately critiques the materialism, reductionism, scientism, collectivism, nihilism, statism, and de-humanization of the modern era.
