    Heaven-Haven
    A Nun Takes The Veil
    by Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844-1889)

    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.
