9781333599362: The Message of Francis Thompson (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Message of Francis Thompson
Now what is true of the child is no less true of the poet. A greater than Francis Thompson warned His hearers: Unless you become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. And we may reverently add: Unless you become as little children, unless you have their inno cence, their faith, their hope, their love, you shall not enter into your full inheritance in the kingdom of song. The poet is essen tially a seer. His mission is to discover the secrets of God and to proclaim them to men; to read the book of Nature and interpret it for us; to make us see with his eyes and hear with his ears. But how shall we, too, learn our lesson if he speak to us in an alien tongue? How feel with him if our eyes are blinded, our ears deafened by alien sights and sounds? By the law of Nature, Thompson reminds us, no man can admire, no man can understand that of which he has no echo in himself. Such an echo implies an experience kindred, if not equal, to that of the utterer. Now this experience may.
