Fr Gerard Manley Hopkins, SJ was always disturbed by inner turmoil. This turmoil welled up within him because of his self-perceived inability to deliver himself wholly to God. Hence, his poetry, which he never gave permission during his lifetime to be published, often expressed his deep dissatisfaction.
Be beginning; since, no, nothing can be done
To keep at bay
Age and age’s evils, hoar hair,
Ruck and wrinkle, drooping, dying, death’s worst, winding sheets, tombs and worms and tumbling to decay
