“Blue Skies”

~ Ella Fitzgerald

“Glory be to God for dappled things--/ For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow;/ For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim;/ Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches' wings;/ Landscape plotted and pieced--fold, fallow, and plough;/ And all trades, their gear and tackle and trim./ All things counter, original, spare, strange;/ Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?)/ With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim;/ He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change: Praise Him.”
