God’s Grandeur

The world is charged with the grandeur of God

It will flame out, like shining from shook foil

And for all this, nature is never spent;

There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;

Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs

Because the Holy Ghost over the bent

World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings

 

Gerard Manley Hopkins SJ
