For Thanks

November 26, 2015

To my fellow Americans – Happy Thanksgiving!  For all those eyes that may ever come to view this page, a word gift:

~Pied Beauty~
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.

Gerard Manley Hopkins
