Pied Beauty by: gerard manley hopkins (feat. Lauren widmann)

Glory be to God for dappled things- (line 1)

For skies of couple-color as a brinded cow; (line 2)

For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim; (line 3)

Finches' wings (line 4)

for trees whose arms brush the heavens, whose leaves grow and fall and change

Landscape plotted and pieced (line 5)

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

With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim; (line 9)

Praise Him. (line 11)
