Tonight as I write, the wind is howling and snow is falling for our first winter storm in Kentucky this year. Every time the mercury falls way below freezing and the icy winds blow, I think of the homeless and pray they find warm shelter. A poem I learned at school a long, long time ago comes to mind. The Old Woman Of The Roads is the prayer of a homeless woman, longing for a little house to call her own. Image Credit.

This week's choice may be the best-loved of GK Chesterton's poems , but perhaps not many readers know that "The Rolling English Road", first published in a political weekly in , was originally titled "A Song of Temperance Reform". I think it was TS Eliot who described Chesterton's verse as "first-rate journalistic balladry" and there's no doubt that much of it, like much of his writing in general, has a mission to persuade. Not for Chesterton the then-fashionable dictum of "art for art's sake". Behind "The Rolling English Road" lies its author's powerfully-felt opposition to the threatened introduction of Prohibition into Britain: the law had already been passed in the US, and Chesterton saw it as an abuse of the ordinary man's right to ordinary pleasures. But, if moral indignation was the impulse, the resulting poem is miles away from one-sided polemic. Form and content blend as harmoniously as — well — hops and fresh water. Heptameters, informally known as "fourteeners" because the line usually has 14 syllables, are potentially cumbersome in English, but Chesterton's lines flow effortlessly, without a stumble.
