Grace-Full

You say grace before meals.
All right.
But I say grace before the play and opera,
And grace before the concert and pantomime,
And grace before I open a book,
And grace before sketching, painting,
Swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing;
And grace before I dip the pen in the ink.
I am alive with the gusto of the Resurrection,
the marvel of truth,
And the thankful foresight of the coming King among us.
- GK Chesterton
