Pied Beauty – Gerard Manley

holi-feast-3

 

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.
