Pied Beauty Gerard Manley Hopkins and Mariateresa Simon

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.
And find beauty in other things
