Heaven-Haven
A Nun Takes The Veil

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.

Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844-1889)

Tuesday Poem

Another Hopkins poem from me this week. I love the stillness of this poem and the notion of retreat.
