    Glory be to God for dappled things -
    For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow;
    For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim;
    Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches' wings;
    Landscape plotted and pieced - fold, fallow, and plough;
    And all trades, their gear and tackle and trim.

    All things counter, original, spare, strange;
    Whatever is fickel, freckeled (who knows how?)
    With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim;
    He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change:
    Praise him.

    The syntax and omission of words here are quite unfamiliar to me. Can anyone give me some help decoding this poem? Anyone?
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
