Pied Beauty By GeRard Manley HopkinS and Erika Markiv

Glory be to God for dappled things (line 1)
For skies of couple-color as a brinded cow (line 2)
Landscape plotted and pierced (line 5)
Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?) (line 8)
With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim; (line 9)
He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change (line 10)
Nature shall always stay as day by day goes by
Captured in photos and paintings its beauty will never fade
From the depths of the ocean to the sun in our sky
To the open fields and shallow rivers in which we wade
