    O little town of Bethlehem,
  How still we see thee lie!
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
  The silent stars go by;


Yet in thy dark streets shineth
  The everlasting Light;
The hopes and fears of all the years
  Are met in thee to-night.
          O little Town of Bethlehem.

      Life comes before literature, as the material always comes before the work. The hills are full of marble before the world blooms with statues.
          Literature and Life.
