Pied Beauty

FREAK, Coney Island


GLORY be to God for dappled things --
All things counter, original, spare, strange;
Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?)
With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim;
He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change:
Praise him.


[all apologies to Gerard Manley Hopkins, PIED BEAUTY]
