I’ve been saying the first line of Pied Beauty in my head all week:

Glory be to God for dappled things

Brilliant innit?

Anyways, I’m back from an amazing vacation and have returned to writing and posting each day. Today was oddly long. I had an unexpected dental appointment that ran into my writing time and thus, I will post someone else’s (Gerald Manley Hopkins to be exact) words in lieu of my own. It’s one of my favorite poems and I think this particular line is me, abridged:

All things counter, original, spare, strange;

Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?)

 

Le Poem in full:

Glory Be to God for dappled things
