Gerard Manley Hopkins - The Lantern out of Doors

Sometimes a lantern moves along the night,
       That interests our eyes. And who goes there?
       I think; where from and bound, I wonder, where,
With, all down darkness wide, his wading light?

Men go by me whom either beauty bright
       In mould or mind or what not else makes rare:
       They rain against our much-thick and marsh air
Rich beams, till death or distance buys them quite.

Death or distance soon consumes them: wind
       What most I may eye after, be in at the end
I cannot, and out of sight is out of mind.

Christ minds: Christ’s interest, what to avow or amend
       There, éyes them, heart wánts, care haúnts, foot
              fóllows kínd,
Their ránsom, théir rescue, ánd first, fást, last friénd.
