The Happy Man - G. K. Chesterton

To teach the grey earth like a child,
   To bid the heavens repent,
I only ask from Fate the gift
   Of one man well content.

Him will I find: though when in vain
   I search the feast and mart,
The fading flowers of liberty,
   The painted masks of art.

I only find him at the last,
   On one old hill where nod
Golgotha’s ghastly trinity—
   Three persons and one god.

G. K. Chesterton (1874 — 1936) England
