“If I set the sun beside the moon”

If I set the sun beside the moon,
And if I set the land beside the sea,
And if I set the flower beside the fruit
And if I set the town beside the country
And if I set the man beside the woman
I suppose some fool would talk
About one being better.

— Chesterton papers, BL MS Add. 73334, fo.5.
