Poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins


Heaven-Haven


I have desired to go
Where springs not fail,
To fields where flies no sharp and sided hail,
And a few lilies blow.

And I have asked to be
Where no storms come,
Where the green swell is in the havens dumb,
And out of the swing of the sea. 



Gerard Manley Hopkins
