In The Valley Of The Elwy

Written by: Gerard Manley Hopkins | Biography
 | Quotes (8) |
 I remember a house where all were good
 To me, God knows, deserving no such thing:
 Comforting smell breathed at very entering,
Fetched fresh, as I suppose, off some sweet wood.
That cordial air made those kind people a hood
 All over, as a bevy of eggs the mothering wing
 Will, or mild nights the new morsels of spring:
Why, it seemed of course; seemed of right it should. 
Lovely the woods, waters, meadows, combes, vales,
All the air things wear that build this world of Wales;
 Only the inmate does not correspond:
God, lover of souls, swaying considerate scales,
Complete thy creature dear O where it fails,
 Being mighty a master, being a father and fond.
