Today’s poem is a “response-poem”. I’ve picked Pied Beauty, by Gerard Manley Hopkins.

What does He truly do, when he brings change?
While being swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim,
How does He decide, what is freckled and fickle?
What is original, and what is counter?
What is tackle, and what is trim?
Sometimes its useful to question, if glory really be to Him,
For sometimes dappled, mottled things,
Create social insecurities He did not intend,
But has somehow forced.
