Poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins


* * *


What being in rank-old nature should earlier have that breath been
That hére pérsonal tells off these heart-song powerful peals?Ч
A bush-browed, beetle-brówed bíllow is it?
With a soúth-wésterly wínd blústering, with a tide rolls reels
Of crumbling, fore-foundering, thundering all-surfy seas in; seen
Únderneath, their glassy barrel, of a fairy green.
. . . . . . . .
Or a jaunting vaunting vaulting assaulting trumpet telling.
