Chesterton, G K - The ballad of the White Horse
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
G K Chesterton – from The ballad of the White Horse
Even they that walked on the high cliffs,
High as the clouds were then,
Gods of unbearable beauty,
That broke the hearts of men.
And whether in seat or saddle,
Whether with frown or smile,
Whether at feast or fight was he,
He heard the noise of a nameless sea
On an undiscovered isle.
