Poems of Gerard Manley HopkinsThe world is charged with the grandeur of God.It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil

Crushed. Why do men then now not reck his rod?

Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;And wears man's smudge and shares man's smell: the soil

Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.And for all this, nature is never spent;There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;

And though the last lights off the black West wentOh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs-Because the Holy Ghost over the bentWorld broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings.

.: :.

The first four lines describe a natural world through which God\'s presence runs like an electrical current. Given these strong proofs of God\'s presence, the persona asks how humans can fail to heed God\'s divine authority. The second quatrain (second set of 4 lines)describes the state of contemporary human life, and how we prioritize the economic over the spiritual. This has robbed humans of their sensitivity to the beauty of nature. The seset asserts that dispite of our falleness nature never ceases to exist. This testifies to the continual renewing power of God. There is always the promise of rebirth.
