Gerard Manley Hopkins

Heaven - Haven A nun takes the veil

Reverend Father Gerard Manley Hopkins, S.






I have desired to go
Where springs not fail,
To fields where flies no sharp and sided hail
And a few lilies blow.
 
And I have asked to be
Where no storms come,
Where the green swell is in the havens dumb,
And out of the swing of the sea.
