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 pierced -- fold, fallow, and plough;

And all trades, their gear and tackle and 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.
