A Quote by Gerard Manley Hopkins on circle, light, nature, and stars

Look at the stars!  Look, look up at the skies!
Oh look at all the fire-folk sitting in the air!
The bright boroughs, the circle-citadels there!

A Quote by Gerard Manley Hopkins

Degged with dew, dappled with dew Are the groins of the braes that the brook treads through, Wiry heathpacks, flitches of fern, And the headbonny ash that sits over the burn.

A Quote by Gerard Manley Hopkins on wilderness and world

What would the world be, once bereft Of wet and of wildness? Let them be left, O Let them be left, wildness and wet: Long live the weeds and the wilderness yet.
