beutiy

A Quote by Gerald Manley Hopkins on beutiy, life, flaws, flavor, change, creation, and praise

Glory be to God for dappled things—    
  For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow;    
    For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim;    
Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches’ wings;    
  Landscape plotted and pieced—fold, fallow, and plough;
    And áll trádes, 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:
                  Praise him.

Gerald Manley Hopkins
