A Good Night - Good Day post…(I need to develop the chestertonian point of view in me these days)
Gilbert K. Chesterton, 1917 -by Oliver Herford

When Plain Folk, such as you or I,See the Sun sinking in the sky,We think it is the Setting Sun,But Mr. Gilbert ChestertonIs not so easily misled.He calmly stands upon his head,And upside down obtain a newAnd Chestertonian point of view,Observing thus, how from his toesThe sun creeps nearer to his nose,He cries with wonder and delight,“How Grand the SUNRISE is to-night!”

Gilbert K. Chesterton, 1917 -by Oliver Herford

When Plain Folk, such as you or I,
See the Sun sinking in the sky,
We think it is the Setting Sun,
But Mr. Gilbert Chesterton
Is not so easily misled.
He calmly stands upon his head,
And upside down obtain a new
And Chestertonian point of view,
Observing thus, how from his toes
The sun creeps nearer to his nose,
He cries with wonder and delight,
“How Grand the SUNRISE is to-night!”
