Gerard Manley Hopkins

Heaven--Haven: A Nun Takes The Veil

 Next Poem          

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.


Anonymous submission.
