    Very tight poem, expressing an intense devotion humbly yet eloquently (and it's not easy to use thou art and thou wert and still sound natural) . Hopkins is a master, and this poem is delightful to contemplate. (Report) Reply

    Seems Hopkins is inwardly seeking the perfection of GOD. Shirking vanities and looking for the light. (Report) Reply

    Catholic theology expressed with a poet’s special gifts, but material interest only to Catholics. (Report) Reply

    The poet's heart shines through this prayerful verse and G.M. Hopkins was in his short life a master of the arresting phrase..... being a priest he saw the world in terms of creative conflict at times with his God. This piece is a good example of his strength as a writer. (Report) Reply
