Gerard Manley Hopkins

Here you will find the Short Poem Love Preparing to Fly of poet Gerard Manley Hopkins

Love Preparing to Fly

He play'd his wings as tho' for flight; 
They webb'd the sky with glassy light.
His body sway'd upon tiptoes, 
Like a wind-perplexed rose; 
In eddies of the wind he went
At last up the blue element.
