Heaven-Haven, by Gerard Manley Hopkins

Storm's a comin

Storm’s a comin


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

  1. I never wanted things to be . . . perfect, to outcast storms or other events that do not please me because . . . I think perpetual blue skies and warm days would eventually be . . . boring !
