May 29
English essayist, novelist, journalist, poet. He is noted for the detective series with sleuth Father Brown.
Before the Roman came to Rye or out to Severn strode,

Yea, naught for your desire,
Save that the sky grows darker yet
And the sea rises higher.

One far fierce hour and sweet;
There was a shout about my ears,
And palms before my feet.
