Welcome To The Triangle Community Methodist Church

Poetry Corner - The Donkey by G.K. Chesterton

When Fishes flew and forests walked
And figs grew upon thorn,
Some moment when the moon was blood
Ten surely, I was born.

With monstrous head and sickening cry
And ears like errant wings,
The devil’s walking parody
On all four-footed things.

The tattered outlaw of the earth,
Of ancient crooked will;
Starve, 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.

This poem, originally published in “the Wild Knight” anthology of 1900 , is wholly appropriate for Eastertide, linking as it does , with our “Palm Sunday Bible reading- the triumphal “Ride into Jerusalem."

As a point of interest, the writer is the creator of the famous Priest /Sleuth character ‘Father Brown’ featuring on TV currently. He was exceptionally prolific, embracing an extensive range of subjects amongst which he produced many religious essays.
