G.K. Chesterton's The Ballad of the White Horse,
Click on the picture below.
"Yet Alfred is no fairy tale;
His days as our days ran...
But who shall look from Alfred's hood
Or breathe his breath alive?
His century like a small dark cloud
Drifts far; it is an eyeless crowd...
We look from Alfred's eyes,
We know he saw athwart the wreck...
Where One more than Melchizedek
Is dead and never dies...."
