William Wordsworth
(1770-1850) born on
Apr 07
English poet. His "Lyrical Ballads," 1798 are noted for their worship of nature and humanitarianism; poet laureate, 1843-50.
This city now doth, like a garment, wear
The beauty of the morning; silent bare,
Ships, towers, domes, theatres and temples lie
Open unto the fields and to the sky;
All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.

Thou best philosopher, who yet dost keep
Thy heritage, thou eye among the blind.
Not without hope we suffer and we mourn.
The rapt one, of the godlike forehead,
The heaven-eyed creature sleeps in earth:
And Lamb, the frolic and the gentle,
Has vanished from his lonely hearth.
'Tis said that some have died for love.
