- Thanks to all for their greetings.
In return I offer a small poem which some of you have undoubtedly seen
STAR OVER NARNIA
So clear, so silver-shrill, aloft and far
High over Narnia sings a star.
He sings above, and here below
In Lantern Waste a lamp will glow;
Young fauns will sit in spellbound row
And hear a tale of long ago.
And in Cair Paravel tonight
The feast is kept, the fires are bright,
The wine is poured, and rulers great
Sit in their wise and holy state -
But all, like Lucy, with laughing heart,
(For she has chosen the better part)
Now taste the rough embrace, now see the shining face
Of Lion's love.
Father of Aslan, Emperor over Sea,
Send us, us too, a light,
Here where our earth falls deeper into night,
A light from Thee.
