The Child Is Father To The Man

'The child is father to the man.'
How can he be? The words are wild.
Suck any sense from that who can:
'The child is father to the man.'
No; what the poet did write ran,
'The man is father to the child.'
'The child is father to the man!'
How _can_ he be? The words are wild.

(The end)
Gerard Manley Hopkins's poem: Child Is Father To The Man

The Shepherd's Brow Fronting Forked Lightning
THE shepherd's brow fronting forked lightning, ownsThe horror and the havoc and the gloryOf it. Angels fall, they are towers, from heaven--a storyOf just, majestical, and giant groans.But man--we, scaffold of score brittle bones;Who breathe, from groundlong babyhood to hoaryAge gasp; whose breath is our _memento mori_--What bass is _our_ viol for tragic tones?He! Hand to mouth he lives, and voids with shame;And, blazoned in however bold the name,Man Jack the man is, just; his mate a hussy.And I that die these deaths, that feed this flame,That ... in smooth spoons spy life's masque mirrored: tameMy tempests

Repeat That, Repeat
REPEAT that, repeat,Cuckoo, bird, and open ear wells, heart-springs, delightfully sweet,With a ballad, with a ballad, a reboundOff trundled timber and scoops of the hillside ground, hollow hollow hollow ground:The whole landscape flushes on a sudden at a sound.(The end)Gerard Manley Hopkins's poem: Repeat That, Repeat
