Christmas Thoughts

It was a tradition in Chesterton's family each year for either him or his wife to write a Christmas poem that could be sent to their friends as a Christmas card. These poems are some of the most beautiful verses that Chesterton ever wrote. In one of them, entitled ”The Wise Men", he writes about the magi who came to worship the new-born Messiah. They explain: "We are the three wise men of yore,/ And we know all things but the truth."
