"Glory be to God..."   (Pied Beauty)

The opening phrase “Glory be to God” places the poem in the context of the form of a Christian prayer. After the first line, the poem departs from the tradition of the prayer and embodies a unique style. One can say that the poem itself is, like its subjects, “counter, original, spare, strange” and thus beautiful in form.
