Pied Beauty
BY GERARD MANLEY HOPKINS Glory be to God for dappled things —
For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow; For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that
swim; Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches’ wings;
Landscape plotted and pieced — fold, fallow, and plough;
And áll trádes, their gear and tackle and trim. All things counter, original, spare, strange;
Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?) With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim;
He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change: Praise him.

  1. This young lady has got it right, which a lot of other dont seem to – she captures the sense of wonder. Praise her!
