Could this be from G.K.Chesterton's 'The Rolling English Road'?
Something very like this quote occurs at the end of the last stanza:

'For there is good news yet to hear and fine things to be seen,/Before we go to Paradise by way of Kensal Green.'
John Terry

G K Chesterton's poem with the words
' With monstrous head and sickening cry and ears like errant wings'
Carol Dyer

There are similar lines in a poem by Tolkien, "I sit beside the fire and think..." One verse has the words, "For still there are so many things that I have never seen! In every wood in every Spring there is a different green."
