Yes, I only have to say I agree. What a beauty


The light and the shadow!! Oh my goodness!! Thanks so very much David!!


Hopkins was a Catholic priest / poet so we learned many of his verses in Catholic school when I was very young. This poem was always my favorite of his.

Thanks, CM, TX*, Gladstone and roseheather. It's nice to be back, even if I'm not back "full-time" quite yet!


Beautiful poem and puzzle!


Hi, David! I love your jig and the posey, and I'm glad to see you back. Missed you.


Great fall colors and poem. Thank you.


Lovely. The puzzle's picture nicely illustrates the words to the poem.


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 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:
Praise him.

--Gerard Manley Hopkins
