    • POEM: Thou Art Indeed Just, Lord, If I Contend by Gerard Manley Hopkins (10/7/2004 1:08:00 AM)

      a lamenting little piece by hopkins as he battles with his faith- he lives the live, 'upon thy cause' but indeed, 'why do sinners' ways prosper'; there is inherent disappointment for him; as God's servant, why does he not benefit- even nature does better than he who 'not breed one work that wakes'.

      but there is very little blame on God, if any at all; there is instead respect and subservience, 'sir', he calls God throughout the play, and in the end, he asks God for strength- 'send my roots rain'.

      the 14 line sonnet is indicative of a prayer form, especially with the reference and direct mention of 'Lord' in the first line. the rhyming scheme adds to this effect, like hymns or prayer in the church.
