As kingfishers catch fire, dragonflies draw flame;<br/> As tumbled over rim in roundy wells<br/> Stones ring; like each tucked string tells, each hung bell's<br/> Bow swung finds tongue to fling out broad it's name;<br/> Each mortal thing does one thing and the same:<br/> Deals out that being indoors each one dwells;<br/> Selves--goes itself; myself it speaks and spells,<br/> Crying "What I do is me: for that I came"

I say more: the just man justices;<br/> Keeps grace: that keeps all his goings graces;<br/> Acts in God's eye what in God's eye he is--<br/> Christ. For Christ plays in ten thousand places,<br/> Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his<br/> To the Father through the feature of men's faces.

--Gerard Manley Hopkins
