Gerard Manley Hopkins - Pied Beauty

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 all trades, their gear and tackle and trim.

All things counter, original, spare, strange;
...Whatever is fickle, freckles (who knows how?)
......With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim;
He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change:
.........Praise him.

.....Pied Beauty by Gerard Manley Hopkins
