"Nature is never spent"


And for all this, nature is never spent;

There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;

And thought the last lights off the black West went

Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs --

Because the Holy Ghost over the bent

World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings.

-from "God's Grandeur," Gerard Manley Hopkins

This post could also be called "What's great about Rhode Island."
