Glory be to God for dappled things –
For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow;
For rose-moles in all stipple upon the trout that swim;
Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches wings;
Landscape plotted and pieced – fold, fallow, plough;
And all trades, 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:
– Gerard Manley Hopkins 1829-1844AD Poet and Jesuit Priest.
