Open Book: Gerard Manley Hopkins' "Pied Beauty"

Providence on the air

Call in to speak with the host

"Glory be to God for dappled things"...so begins Hopkins' sublime and thoughtful ode to the types of things most poets avoid — the imperfect, the strange, the ordinary. Where can we find God in those things about ourselves that we'd rather avoid? How can we learn to glorify those traits in others? Listen in as Lori and Alice contemplate these questions.
