Pied Beauty

The poem praises God for the beauty in a varied creation. Hopkins isolates a number of instances of this “pied” or dappled beauty in the first stanza. He finds it in two-toned skies as well as on cows, on spotted trout, and on the wings of birds. He also sees variety and unity in the contrasts between all these life-forms, for he sees echoes of plants on fish—“rose-moles upon trout,” echoes of the dying embers of fires in the chestnuts falling from the tree.

The poem praises God for the beauty in a varied creation. In fact, variety is the spice of life. God demonstrates this. Hopkins selects various objects like skies having two tones white and blue, cows, trout which have spots and birds with their wings. The poet sees the glimpse of God in different landscapes, some of them folded, some fallowed and some ploughed.

The poet brings unity in flora and fauna. He sees echoes of plants on fish and rose moles upon trout. In the chestnuts falling from the tree, he sees echoes of the dying embers of fires. In God’s creation, according to the poet, there is original and counter, common and strange.
