Wicked Awesome Poem Wednesday - ish

Pied Beauty

Glory be to God for dappled things -
For skies of couple-colour as a brindled 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 trim.

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.

-Gerard Manley Hopkins

OT: What kind of wallpaper do you want? Critter pics or 3d work? Oh, and what's your monitor size? Loch Ness is a great movie!
