I yet believe (if such a word
On these soiled lips be not absurd)
That from the place beyond all ken
One only Word has come to men,
And was incarnate and had hands
And feet and walked in earthly lands
And died, and rose. And nothing more
Will come or ever came before
—Go, learn your catechism and creed.
Mark what I say, not how I live,
And for myself—may God forgive.
~ C. S. Lewis, from “The Queen of Drum,” in Narrative Poems
