Repeat That, Repeat

Repeat that, repeat,
Cuckoo, bird, and open ear wells, heart-springs, delightfully sweet,
With a ballad, with a ballad, a rebound
Off trundled timber and scoops of the hillside ground, hollow hollow hollow ground:
The whole landscape flushes on a sudden at a sound.

by Gerard Manley Hopkins

Lovely poem with a wonderful expression about the charm of nature through its myriad shades and moods. Loved reading it. Thanks, Gerard. The whole landscape flushes on a sudden at a sound.
Beautiful piece, isn't it? Playing with the sounds of words
