Pied Beauty Gerard Manley Hopkins & J. Go

Glory to God for dappled things— For skies of couple-color as a brinded cow... (Lines 1-2)
For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim... (Line 3)
Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches' wings; landscape plotted and pieced—fold, fallow, and plough; and all trades, their gear and tackle and trim... (Lines 4-6)

All things counter, original, spare, strange; Whatver is fickle, freckled (who knows how?)... (Lines 7-8)

With swift, sweet, sour; adazzle, dim... (Line 9)
He fathers-forth whose beauty is past changed; Praise him. (Lines 10-11)
For it is the gift of creation given to us that allows for our idea of beauty to become a reality.
