Poems of Gerard Manley HopkinsA buglar boy from barrack (it is over the hill
There)-boy bugler, born, he tells me, of IrishMother to an English sire (he
Shares their best gifts surely, fall how things will),This very very day came down to us after a boon he on
My late being there begged of me, overflowingBoon in my bestowing,
Came, I say, this day to it-to a First Communion.Here he knelt then ín regimental red.
Forth Christ from cupboard fetched, how fain I of feetTo his youngster take his treat!
Low-latched in leaf-light housel his too huge godhead.There! and your sweetest sendings, ah divine,
By it, heavens, befall him! as a heart Christ's darling, dauntless;Tongue true, vaunt- and tauntless;
Breathing bloom of a chastity in mansex fine.Frowning and forefending angel-warder
Squander the hell-rook ranks sally to molest him;March, kind comrade, abreast him;
Dress his days to a dexterous and starlight order.How it dóes my heart good, visiting at that bleak hill,
When limber liquid youth, that to all I teachYields tender as a pushed peach,
Hies headstrong to its wellbeing of a self-wise self-will!Then though I should tread tufts of consolation
Dáys áfter, só I in a sort deserve toAnd do serve God to serve to
Just such slips of soldiery Christ's royal ration.Nothing élse is like it, no, not all so strains
Us: fresh youth fretted in a bloomfall all portendingThat sweet's sweeter ending;
Realm both Christ is heir to and thére réigns.O now well work that sealing sacred ointment!
O for now charms, arms, what bans off badAnd locks love ever in a lad!
Let mé though see no more of him, and not disappointmentThose sweet hopes quell whose least me quickenings lift,
In scarlet or somewhere of some day seeingThat brow and bead of being,
An our day's God's own Galahad. Though this child's driftSeems by a divíne doom chánnelled, nor do I cry
Disaster there; but may he not rankle and roamIn backwheels though bound home?-
That left to the Lord of the Eucharist, I here lie by;Recorded only, I have put my lips on pleas
Would brandle adamantine heaven with ride and jar, didPrayer go disregarded:
Forward-like, but however, and like favourable heaven heard these.
