Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844â€“89) Poems. 1918.
GLORY be to God for dappled thingsâ€”
For skies of couple-colour as a brindled cow;
For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim;
Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finchesâ€™ wings;
Landscape plotted and piecedâ€”fold, fallow, and plough;
And Ã¡ll trÃ¡des, 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:
