Spring Analysis

Nothing is so beautiful as spring—

  When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;

  Thrush's eggs look little low heavens, and thrush

Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring

The ear, it strikes like lightnings to hear him sing;

  The glassy peartree leaves and blooms, they brush

  The descending blue; that blue is all in a rush

With richness; the racing lambs too have fair their fling.

What is all this juice and all this joy?

  A strain of the earth's sweet being in the beginning

In Eden garden.—Have, get, before it cloy,

  Before it cloud, Christ, lord, and sour with sinning,

Innocent mind and Mayday in girl and boy,

  Most, O maid's child, thy choice and worthy the winning.

.: Spring :.

This poem shows how Hopkins was heavily influenced by his religious background. the poem is wriiten as a plea to God, Hopkins speaks of the beauty of nature and makes close references to the bible, "Eden Garden". in the poem he associates the beauty of Spring with the puritty of the Virgin Mary who is adaored by Catholics for her purity and lack of sin. this poem is an excellent example of the religious themes which Hopkins explored in many of his poems.
