The Sky Minted Into Golden Sequins

October 29, 2012
Look at the stars! look, look up at the skies!
O look at all the fire-folk sitting in the air!
The bright boroughs, the circle-citadels there!
(Gerard Manley Hopkins)
 
“When I consider your heavens,
   the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
   which you have set in place,
what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
    human beings that you care for them?”
(from Psalm 8)

    Wonderful. The beginning of Hopkins’ poem is brought alive by this bit in Psalm 8. Thank you.
