Heaven-Haven

By Fr. Paul Mankowski, S.J. (articles ) | Apr 08, 2003

A nun takes the veil

I have desired to go Where springs not fail, To fields where flies no sharp and sided hail And a few lilies blow.

And I have asked to be Where no storms come, Where the green swell is in the havens dumb, And out of the swing of the sea.

-- Gerard Manley Hopkins, S.J.
