Here you will find the Poem My Own Heart Let Me More Have Pity on of poet Gerard Manley Hopkins

My Own Heart Let Me More Have Pity on

My own heart let me more have pity on; let 
Me live to my sad self hereafter kind, 
Charitable; not live this tormented mind 
With this tormented mind tormenting yet. 
I cast for comfort I can no more get 
By groping round my comfortless, than blind 
Eyes in their dark can day or thirst can find 
Thirst 's all-in-all in all a world of wet. 

Soul, self; come, poor Jackself, I do advise 
You, jaded, let be; call off thoughts awhile 
Elsewhere; leave comfort root-room; let joy size 
At God knows when to God knows what; whose smile 
's not wrung, see you; unforeseen times rather - as skies 
Betweenpie mountains - lights a lovely mile.
